COVID-19: Club doctors kick against resumption of EPL matches


At least four Premier League club doctors have expressed concerns about the resumption of games, ahead of Monday’s meeting between shareholders, according to Sky Sports.

The Premier League presented its proposals to all 20 clubs last week and asked doctors for any concerns and feedback.

Four doctors have since sent in questions, which will be answered at the league’s next shareholders meeting on Monday, a day after the UK government gives an update on lockdown restrictions.

The proposals include a plan to test players twice a week.

Testing will be paid for by the Premier League and privately sourced, so it does not take any resources from public health needs.

“The world is not ready for competitive football.

“I hope this can change very quickly. Today you need more patience,” the chairman of FIFA’s medical committee, Dr Michel D’Hooghe, said last week.
