A number of Premier League players have welcomed their return to training as they make their first steps towards completing the 2019-20 season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Players were allowed to resume training in small groups from Tuesday afternoon after a shareholders’ vote on Monday, although social distancing must be practised at all times with contact training not permitted at this stage.
