The Bundesliga resumed action during the weekend, as they are the first of Europe’s top leagues to resume football since football was shut down across most parts of the world.

The Premier League are also trying to take a cue from the Bundesliga, with plans set to resume football in June.

Willian has now admitted that most players aren’t comfortable with returning to action, and that the Chelsea players have been talking to themselves about the situation.

“Honestly, from what I can see, a lot of players – the majority, I’d say – are uncomfortable with the idea of returning right now,” Willian was quoted by the Evening Standard.

“We’re really keen to return, we really miss playing and doing what we love. But it needs to be safe for us to do so. That’s how we’re looking at it. Our health has to come first.

“So right now, players don’t feel comfortable with the idea of returning until it’s totally safe to do so.

“Our squad has spoken a lot over the internet, via different apps, and we’ve had some meetings too. Lampard has sent us information about what the Premier League wants to do.

“We still don’t know how things are going to play out, moving forward. Hopefully, we’ll know in the next few days. The Premier League is going to have a meeting and then they’ll inform us about the next steps.”
