- Premier League is working on a return in June but with stringent measures
- Players including Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham are concerned for their families ahead of the restart
- The striker revealed his dad suffers from asthma and might be at risk of contracting the virus once players resume full training
It is all systems go for the Premier League to resume in June, but that does not necessarily mean all players are ready to return to action amid the coronavirus scare.
Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is among those who are genuinely concerned for their families amid the impending return of English football.
Top flight players are set to return to full training action as early as Tuesday, May 19, with the English Premier League given the go ahead to resume from June 1.
The Blues top scorer Tammy Abraham , who has been living with his family, recently described some of his fears ahead of what looks like a likely football resumption.
The England forward’s biggest concern in particular is his father, who suffers from asthma.
Coronavirus typically attacks respiratory organs and patients with pre-existing conditions are more susceptible to be adversely effected by the bug.
Contracting the illness, even inadvertently, might prove potentially dangerous for Tammy Abraham’s family, as he voiced to Daily Mail.
“The most important thing for me is for everyone to be well and safe, and for things to start opening up. Then, by all means, football can always come back. If it's safe to do so let's do it, but if it's not then we will wait,” he said.
Ahead of the restart, players will be tested twice on regular occasions and 48-hours before group training sessions.
"My dad has asthma, so if I was to return to the Premier League and, God forbid, I do catch this disease and bring it home it's the worst thing possible,” Abraham continued.
Discussions between league officials, medical experts, and all 20 clubs are still ongoing, although the FA ruled out voiding the season as a viable option.
Manchester City star Sergio Aguero also previously expressed concern over the safety of his family now that he is about to get “back to work”.
Chelsea’s currently occupy fourth spot in the standings with Tammy, who has been in prolific form for the Blues, recovring from injury.
