The English Premier League is set to resume this month after the UK government gave the final go ahead last week for games to resume.

Clubs have since resumed training for two weeks now, as the phase one of training started with some strict rules.

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has now revealed how strange it has been for him since his return to training.

He said: “We resumed training [on Tuesday 19 May]. It really feels good to be back on the pitch, to get to see team-mates again and to simply be playing football. I’d really missed it.

“It’s very unusual, as we work in groups of three or five. We need to maintain a two-metre minimum social distance between each other, meaning no [physical] contact.

“We’re tested [for COVID-19] twice a week. We can’t access the changing room. We can’t shower either, meaning you have to get changed before stepping into your car in order to keep it clean. And it’s very hot at the moment too – I’m not complaining about that, but it means we sweat a lot!”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
