- The top flight has been on hold since March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
- The clubs have made their intention of seeing the season out clear during several meetings up to date.
- However, The Guardian state some are having reservations about completing the campaign.
- These reservations are mostly health-related, although wages and contractual situations are a huge part too.
Officially Premier League clubs have made their intent to see the season through clear, however, behind-closed-doors some of them are not quite as sure, The Guardian report.
These have a number of reservations about playing the season to its conclusion. The most pressing one is the safety concern, in that a contact sport will be played by 20 teams, increasing the risk of the infection spreading.
A provisional plan has been drawn up to ensure the safety of the players, however, one club has questioned the feasibility of it. The amount of testing required for players and staff would put a further strain on the NHS, while there's also a concern players will have to be separated from their families for over a month.
Some clubs are also worried about the situation with wages they will have to keep paying to players whose deals would be extended if the season runs into July - as would likely be the case. Equally, teams in the relegation zone won't be able to slash the existing players' salaries as they could have done in case relegation was confirmed.
Further to that, playing games in a congested schedule in a bid to finish the season as soon as possible would put a physical strain on players, putting clubs with smaller and/or more senior players at a disadvantage.
None of those issues have been raised during official meetings, The Guardian understands. The next one will take place on Friday, May 1.
