Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has insisted safety has to come first for players and staff in the lead up to resuming the Premier League season.

Lampard made the statement just days after Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante opted out of training on Wednesday over safety fears.

“It’s been really good to get some work into the players,” Lampard said, in an interview with BBC’s Football Focus.

“It mean it is individual work, we can’t quite get enough hands on around them because we have to tow the line but it is about seeing how things go. Safety has to come first.

“Once we get over Phase One, see what Phase Two looks like and beyond that, then we can think about getting the games back, albeit behind-closed-doors.”
