Gary Neville sees no reason why players’ fitness level will be an issue for a potential Premier League restart on June 19

Gary Neville has called on the Premier League to restart the league no later than June 19, as players will only need “two or three weeks” of training to learn.

The “project restart” continues to progress steadily, with players likely voting later on Wednesday for a resume to close contact training, which includes tackling.

The importance of contact training is that it is the biggest step towards resuming games.

The Premier League says a proposed June 12 date remains flexible, with reports suggesting the clubs want to postpone it until June 26, fearing players will succumb to injury if they rush too early.

However, Neville is not worried about the current deadline for players to get back into shape, citing June 19 as a reasonable restart date.

Speaking on The Football Show, he said, “Two or three weeks more than the fitness work they did at home is about right. June 12 feels early but there is no reason to go beyond June 19 for a reboot. “

He added, “I don’t see the physical condition of the players as a concern – I don’t see that they need four or five weeks. Even when they have had six weeks off for the preseason, within 10 days of returning, they would again play in the preseason.

“They would not be 100% in shape but these are unknown times. I wouldn’t expect the players to be absolutely perfect. I think two to three weeks is pretty good to get them to start playing again. “

“We are constantly told throughout the season that players are overworked, playing too many games. What we can’t have is a situation where the players have had an eight-week break and then say they need six weeks of training to return. to physical fitness.

“If Harry Kane was at the edge of the European championships and had to come back two weeks before the tournament, he would say he was fit and ready to go. I do not see the difference with this situation.

“If it was a major cup final or a championship match, and a player had been absent for eight weeks with an injury and had only had 10 days of training , he would fight to enter this team. I do not accept the need for an extended period of time. ”

Neville also explained why the lockout could have helped Tottenham and Manchester United, with key players returning from injury, and highlighted the importance of Heung-Min Son for the Spurs …

“I think the lockdown helps Tottenham and helps Manchester United. They recover Pogba and Rashford, Tottenham recover Kane and Son. I know we say these clubs have teams and they are great clubs, but you can’t lose Harry Kane and not be hit.

“His is a player who I think could fit into any team in the world. His style of play is so modern, he’s a modern striker who can play left, play right, play in front and I think he’s somehow as important to Tottenham as Harry Kane.

“If you are Harry Kane, you need His to play with you, he makes the passes that create space for Kane. In fact, Kane is a huge positive for Tottenham, but also a bit of a problem because they probably can’t get another center forward to go to the club because they know he’ll be on the bench. What that means is that when Harry Kane is injured, there is a big loss, so he and Son are extremely important.

“Jose, I think, is still trying to settle in Tottenham, and I think he will be more confident after the lockdown of achieving what he wants this season than he would have done before, because these two players were absent. “

Souness: the return of the PL would be a huge boost for the country

Also speaking on The Football Show Graeme Souness insisted on Wednesday that we must accept that a return to the Premier League would be imperfect, but that a return in any form would be a huge boost for the country.

He said, “You want four to five weeks, but everyone is different. Some players get in shape faster than others.

“It is inevitable that there will be tension and pull-ups, but that is the price on the ticket. What people have to accept is unfiltered water. We are in an area that no one has ever been before, so we just have to accept that things are not quite right.

“The whole nation wants them to start playing again, those who have a minimum interest in football want it, television wants it, and it would be, regardless of what any anti-football says, a huge boost for the country. People enjoy football, the most watched and popular sport in the world, and represent a large part of their hobbies, whether they do it or watch it on television.

“They want to get it back, and it’s going to be imperfect. We just have to accept it. Injury will happen. We may not get the results we expect. It’s behind closed doors – it’s not perfect. The players may not be aware – it’s not perfect. People will get hurt – it’s not perfect.

“But these are incredible moments we are going through, we just have to go, when it is deemed safe, and thank God, we are getting closer to that now.” “
