Life is slowly beginning to resume as the world is trying to resume activities in spite of the coronavirus pandemic.

Football is also returning to our screens, and the German Bundesliga has recorded four successful matchday games, since football resumed in Germany last month.

The Premier League is set to resume on June 17, and former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp is confident the league’s resumption will be a success, following the success of the Bundesliga campaign so far.

Speaking on Sky Sports, the former Liverpool man explained: “It’s a huge week. With what’s happened in Germany, I’ve got no doubt the vote will go ahead and the clubs will vote to try to get phase two going, which is obviously important.

“I also think there’ll be a situation where more players will opt out, which is their prerogative, but with the success in Germany – it’s not been great, it’s not the product we really like, with no fans there, but at least it’s football – I’ll be very surprised if it doesn’t go ahead.”

There are 92 games yet to be played, and the Premier League will try to wrap up the season by July.
