The Premier League has come close to restarting the devices as restrictions on coronaviruses are relaxed after clubs voted unanimously to resume contact training.
Players will now be invited to train as a group, allowing them to attack again “while minimizing unnecessary close contact.”
A statement released by the league to mark the transition to the second stage of its plan to resume training COVID-19[female[feminine Pandemic said, “The Premier League priority is the health and well-being of all participants.
“Strict medical protocols are in place to ensure that the training ground is the safest possible environment and players and staff will continue to be tested for COVID-19 twice a week. “
The clubs are working on a return to matches on June 19, with the matches taking place behind closed doors.
The statement said that discussions are “underway while work continues to resume the season, when conditions allow.”
The league was boosted in its efforts to get back into action when only two of the 996 players and club staff – from two different clubs – tested coronavirus last week turned out to be infected.
Since the start of his extensive testing program, he has announced a total of eight positive results, including Watford defender Adrian Mariappa and Burnley assistant manager Ian Woan.
The clubs began the first phase of “Project Restart” last week after agreeing to resume training in small groups within strict and contactless limits.
Phase two will allow up to 10 players to work together and ease time restrictions on training sessions, allowing players to be closer.
No Premier League game has been played since March, but Wednesday’s vote is a big step toward completing the last 92 games.
The third phase would involve moving to a more typical form of training in preparation for real games.

Watford forward Troy Deeney said last week that he would not immediately return to training, citing concerns about the health of his five-month-old son who has breathing difficulties.
He also said he questioned officials about additional protections for players who are black, Asian or mixed, given the evidence that they may be at higher risk of developing severe coronavirus symptoms.
“For black, Asian and mixed ethnicities, they are four times more likely to contract the disease and we are twice as likely to have long-term illnesses,” he said.
“Is there additional screening? Heart tricks to see if people have problems? No. Okay, I think it should be fixed. “
The Premier League has said it will support a trophy presentation for anyone crowned champion if that is certain.
It’s probably Liverpool, who had a 25-point lead at the top of the table when the season was interrupted and need only two more wins to secure their first high-flying title in 30 years.
