Roy Hodgson has no fears over Premier League return despite virus

Hodgson has no worries over Premier League return regardless of covid 19 infection

Hodgson is the oldest manager in Premier League history at 72, potentially putting the former England coach in threat if he contracts the virus.

But Hodgson said he had no fears about returning to work if the Premier League adhere to their plan to let clubs begin training next week.
Asked if he would be able to return, Hodgson told beIN SPORTS: “ Yes. No concerns. Age is’age. It's how you feel truly. Your age doesn’t always connect to your physical fitness or how you’re feeling, or your capacity to do a task.”

Hodgson, whose long managerial career has included stints at Liverpool and Inter Milan, stated he had actually used the enforced break because the Premier League was suspended in March to work on his physical fitness.

So I have no qualms whatsoever,”  he stated. When I 'm called back to work I shall be very pleased to go back to work.”
Numerous Premier League gamers have actually revealed concern about putting themselves and their families at risk.

Newcastle defender Danny Rose and Manchester City stars Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling are amongst the gamers to go public with worries about being forced back into action prematurely.

Hodgson stated he and Palace chairman Steve Parish would not have a problem if any of his players did not desire to return to work before they felt entirely safe.

This is going to be a matter for the specific and a matter for the club at the end of the day, Hodgson stated.

I would be really surprised, knowing my club and Steve Parish as I do, that he would not be supportive to a gamer that came and stated: ‘& lsquo; Look, I have severe reservations about playing’'
