The French league, the Belgian league and the Dutch league have all cancelled their season, whereas the Premier League and Bundesliga are planning on resuming football activities.

Football has been suspended since March 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the Premier League is making plans to resume in June.

The Premier League will put in place some safety measures to ensure that the virus isn’t spread, and football will be played behind closed doors.

However, ESPN has reported that a growing number of players don’t want to play football during the coronavirus crisis.

A source said: “A lot of players are very uncomfortable with coming back. The only way the league takes this seriously is when someone at a club dies. We will look back on this time with sadness in the future.”

It has also been reported that players with young children and pregnant wives at home are concerned about having to play football during the pandemic and many believe social distancing isn’t possible in football.

Arsenal, Brighton Hove & Albion and West Ham United have made their training facilities available for individual training to the players, but it isn’t yet at full gear.
