Players scared of return to football

Players are “scared” about the prospect of returning to action amid the current global health situation, says Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero. The Premier League is hoping to resume the season in June, which would require players to be back in full training in May.

The majority of players are scared because they have children and families,” said 31-year-old Aguero.

Speaking to Argentine TV station El Chiringuito, the Argentina international Aguero added: “I’m scared, but I’m with my girlfriend here and I’m not going to be in contact with other people. I’m locked in my house and the only person I could infect is my girlfriend.

They’re saying that there are people that have it and don’t have any symptoms but still infect you. That’s why I am here at home. Maybe I have the illness and I don’t even know.”

Aguero said he and his team-mates, will be “quite nervous and extra careful” when they return to work.

“When one person is ill we will think ‘oh what’s happening here?'” he added. “I hope a vaccine will be found soon so that this all ends.”

Aguero won’t be alone in his fears and there claims that clubs could face civil claims for corporate manslaughter if players die as a result of a return to football too early.

  1. Corporate Manslaughter is exactly what it would be if any player becomes infected and dies as a result . The EFL players could of course put it to the vote and refuse to play ; meaning they could within rights go on Strike . Don’t know how that works in football but maybe there are players who would seriously consider it .
