Danny Rose On Premier League Restart: "It's Bollocks"

The Newcastle loanee rightly questions boosting "the morale of the nation" when people's lives are at risk.

The Bundesliga is ready to go this weekend with TV schedules and a plan. Meanwhile, the Premier League has been given tentative clearance from the UK government to possibly resume on June 1 behind closed doors.

The idea of restarting England’s top flight has been met with opposition from players like Sergio Agüero, Glenn Murray and Mattéo Guendouzi. The latest player to speak out is Danny Rose, whose video rant expressed his feelings about the return of football in England.

If the Premier League was to restart in June, there's a definite possibility that certain players would refuse to return without proper safety measures in place. Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings jokingly said on Twitter that if he returns, he'll be wearing a mask and gloves.

Manchester City star Raheem Sterling is also hesitant to return to action. On his YouTube channel, Sterling said he's worried about safety.

“I feel like once that side of the people’s safety and the players’ safety is secured, and their wellbeing is looked after, then that’s the right time to go back in,” Sterling said. “Until then, I’m, how can I say, not scared but reserved and thinking what the worst outcome could be.”

As of May 12, the UK has reported over 226,000 cases with 32,692 deaths.
