Premier League star Sergio Aguero says he is ‘scared’ about returning to play football during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Manchester City striker was speaking ahead of a meeting of the 20 Premier League clubs via a video call today to examine plans to restart the season that has been on ice since March 13th.
The League is hoping to resume on June 8th, with training starting on May 18th, but there are obstacles, amid moral disquiet and objections from clubs to playing matches at neutral venues.
The British Government will also need to back any plans from a safety standpoint.
It’s reported the League will invest in testing machines costing 36 thousand pounds that can generate test results within 2 and a half hours.
The cost of private testing may be beyond some clubs in the Football League.
A vote by the Premier League clubs is then expected next Thursday on today’s proposals.
