Manchester City star Sergio Aguero says “players are afraid” to return to action during pandemic


Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says players are afraid of the prospect of returning to play during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) because many have young families and will be “quite nervous and extremely careful” when they will resume training.

“The majority of players are afraid because they have children and families,” said Aguero.

Top clubs are expected to meet on Friday to discuss the next steps in a potential return to the Premier League with the league pending since March 13. “Project Restart” hopes that the remaining matches in the league will be played behind closed doors with June 8 reserved. as a potential start date.

Aguero thinks there is too much uncertainty.

“They say there are people who have it and have no symptoms but are still infecting you,” Aguero told El Chiringuito television in his native Argentina. “That’s why I’m here at home. Maybe I have the disease and I don’t even know. “

Aguero, 31, remains skeptical about a return.

“A fortnight ago we were told about a return date [to training] and it was May 4, “said Aguero. Now there is a new meeting. It will be difficult to play the Champions League in August. “

Aguero, the Premier League’s top scorer with 180 goals, has been with City since a transfer in 2011 from Atletico Madrid. His current contract will expire at the end of the 2021 season.
