- All 20 Premier League sides are now back in group training.
- A few players, however, have refused to return or left after just one day.
- Redknapp believes the number will increase in the future, creating an unfair balance.
Jamie Redknapp is worried that some Premier League quitting training over safety concerns will create an 'unfair competition' should the 2019/20 campaign get back underway next month.
Speaking on Sky Sports, the former Liverpool man said: "I've spoken to managers, there's a lot more to come out that just don't feel right about it. That's going to be a major problem.
"If you've got a squad of 22, 23 players and six or seven are not comfortable, they think they're putting their families at risk, how is that a fair competition? It becomes a real Premier League problem. It doesn't become fair.
"Some managers have come out now and said it's going to be a fair situation no matter what happens, but if you're going to lose three or four players, and Troy Deeney's the captain of Watford, that's not a fair competition.
"I do think it's going to get harder and harder, I think you're going to see more players coming out and saying they're not sure about playing, they're not sure about what's going on. So you've just got to take each incident in isolation."
