Boss: "There Does To Be Strong Appetite From The Goverment To Get Football Back On As Soon As Safe To Do So"

29 April 2020

David Artell is hoping that the world has progressed from the worse of the coronavirus in terms of death and infection rates - but he says that football will still have to resolve a lot of issues before our game is deemed safe to return.

The Alex boss remains optimistic that the season will be completed one way or another and he has been buoyed by the government’s eagerness to  try and get football back for the masses as soon as safely possible.

David told the club’s official website: “It is only my opinion and pure speculation and my view is as valuable or invaluable as the next man but it seems as though we are over the worse of it. We seem to be over the hill and peering down the other side but we still have to be cautious.

“I am no medical advisor but there does seems to be an appetite from the government to resume football as soon as it is safe to do so. I am sure conservations take place all the time and I know the leagues are in constant conversations.

“Of course, there will be a whole lot of issues to resolve, the logistics of it, the need for testing so it won’t be a drain on resources and making sure that social distancing is upheld.

“I have no idea when and how it will start and all we can do is wait and see what happens.”
