- The Premier League is currently gearing up for a restart in June.
- The remaining games will likely be played at neutral venues behind closed doors.
- Ex-Palace boss Holloway slams the idea of playing amid the Covid-19 outbreak in the country.
Ian Holloway has slammed the Premier League's plans to restart the 2019/20 campaign behind closed doors amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking on talkSPORT radio, the former Crystal Palace manager said: "If we can just get this in perspective. At this moment in time, there is a virus outside that we don't know if we've got it, we don't know if we can give it to people.
"We're not supposed to go out and meet even our own family. It's just crazy because there are people who are having to go to work because their jobs determine that and they're placing themselves in danger.
"So, how can you possibly, possibly even think of starting a sport like football right now? It's impossible, it's ludicrous. it's laughable, in my opinion. If it wasn't so serious I'd be laughing now.
"How can you play contact sport and then say it's safe to do it? It isn't safe to do it so we shouldn't even be dreaming of doing it. It's invisible, you don't know if you have it. That's what's so ludicrous about this.
"You could've infected someone, killed them, you might just brush it off in a couple of days and yet they've just lost their life. Until there's a vaccine, how can we say that it's safe to let football players go back and play football?"
The 2019/20 Premier League season could resume on June 12 provided the 'Project Restart' is approved by the United Kingdom's government.
