Two to three weeks and Premier League players will be ready

    Gary Neville insists even though they won’t be 100%, Premier Lague players will be fit enough to play in two to three weeks.

    The Premier League will be the last of Europe’s elite leagues to set a return date for post-COVID-19 football.

    La Liga and Serie A are aiming for June 11th and 13th respectively, with the English top-flight thought to be in or around the same time.

    After today’s announcement that contact could now be added to practice, former England defender Gary Neville thinks we are only a matter of a couple of weeks away from being ready.

    While the retired United man does not believe the players will be 100 percent fit, he thinks they will be fit enough to deal with the circumstances.

    Speaking to Sky Sports, he said:

    “Two or three weeks on top of the fitness work they’ve been doing at home feels about right.” 

    “June 12 feels a touch early but there’s no reason to go beyond June 19 for a restart.”

    “I don’t see players’ fitness being a concern, I don’t see them needing four or five weeks.”

    “Even when they’ve had six weeks off for pre-season, within 10 days of going back in they’d be playing games again in pre-season.”

    “They wouldn’t be 100 percent fit but these are uncharted times.”

    “I wouldn’t expect the players to be absolutely perfect. I feel two to three weeks is about right to get them back playing again.”

    “If this was a major cup final or league game, and a player had been out for eight weeks with an injury and he only had 10 days of training, he’d be fighting to get into that squad.”

    “I don’t buy into the need for an extended period of time.”

    The question is, will continued positive coronavirus tests of players affect these tentatives dates?
