FIFA Council and Chairman medical chief Michel D’Hooghe is calling for the Premier League season to be cancelled amid reports the Premier League is set to resume.
According to D’Hooghe, football isn’t ready to return because football is a contact sport and contact is what we should avoid in the fight against coronavirus.
“The world is not ready for competitive football,” D’Hooghe told Sky Sports News per The Independent.
“I hope this can change very quickly and I sincerely hope that. Today you need more patience.
“Football can only be possible if contact is possible again. Football remains a contact sport and contact is one of the first things everyone says that you should avoid.”
