The Premier League has been suspended since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic but it has in the last two few weeks started preparations for the restart of the league so that it can be finished. The Premier League has announced the latest new development in the quest to bring back football and Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta will be happy with this.
The Premier League will be returning next month according to most reports in England and its now been officially confirmed that the clubs will be allowed to start training with contact since the players had only been training without having to do any drills that would involve them having to touch each other. The Premier League claims that all the clubs unanimously voted to resume contact training and this decision comes after the players and club staff got tested and only about six people came out positive.
Most Premier League managers will be happy with this as they will now start focusing on tactics as the training drills done in the last two weeks were mostly about trying to get the players back to full fitness since all of them were at their homes for two months due to the lockdown by the government. Mikel Arteta will be glad that the players will now be able to start having contact in training as the COVID-19 pandemic came at a time when the players had started adapting to his tactics and so he will be hoping to continue from where he left off.
Arsenal will be happy with the return of the Premier League because they will now have a chance of getting into the UEFA Champions League spots since they are just a few points away with a game in hand.
