Fans could return to stadiums in October – British PM Johnson

first_img Premier League chief executive Richard Masters has previously said top-flight clubs are keen to act as “test pilots” for any experiments around a phased reopening of grounds. Top-flight matches have been played behind closed doors since action resumed last month due to coronavirus restrictions. Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said it was “great news”. “Between the economic side and the passion side, we’d all be so, so happy to see people back in stadiums,” he said. “If it’s impossible to have the full stadiums we dream of, at least some people would be a good start.” Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is also eager for fans to be allowed back but urged caution. “I think we have to be patient,” he said. “I think we are all desperate to have our people back in the stadium and make football what it is again.” Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?20 Facts That’ll Change Your Perception Of “The Big Bang Theory”The Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

The government said the “events have been carefully selected to represent a range of sports and indoor and outdoor spectator environments”. Sports minister Nigel Huddleston said he recognised for many sports, fans were their “lifeblood”. “Although it will remain some time before venues are full to capacity, this is a major step in the right direction for the resumption of live spectator sport across the country,” he said. Spectators could return to sports stadiums in October after a series of test events that will start later this month, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday. Mass gatherings have been banned since March as part of social-distancing measures brought in to combat the coronavirus pandemic. But as Johnson set out the next stage of the recovery road map for England, he said the government was working towards a return of spectators. “We will pilot larger gatherings in venues such as sports stadia with a view to a wider reopening in the autumn,” he said at a Downing Street briefing. “From October we intend to bring back audiences in stadia and allow conferences and other business events to recommence,” he added.center_img Read Also: Lampard cautions Chelsea stars to forget revenge talk against Man Utd Clubs in the English Football League have been particularly hard hit by the loss of matchday revenue.

Will Keane could be drafted into Manchester United first-team picture

first_img Press Association United cut short Keane’s season-long loan at Deepdale last week. The 22-year-old striker scored two goals in 22 matches for the Championship club, but United manager Louis van Gaal has a shortage of strikers in his squad. Manchester United are planning to bring Will Keane into the first-team squad following his recall from a loan spell at Preston. “He’s a young player, he’s part of the first-team squad but not always getting the minutes so it’s vital that he does play for the Under-21s when he gets the opportunity. “He needs to play as well as much as possible so that was good for him to play against Tottenham and it’s a bonus to get the goals.” Nick Powell, who has played the last three Under-21 games, was left out of the squad on Monday. The midfielder is expected to leave United on loan this month, but missed the game at Leigh through injury. Martin said: “He’s got a calf strain at the moment.” Keane returned to action for United in their Under-21 win over Tottenham on Monday, but could soon be playing first-team football for the club. “I think that’s the idea of him coming back from Preston, that hopefully he’ll be involved with the first team more than the Under-21s,” United youth coach Tommy Martin said when asked if Keane would be now be pushing for a place in the first-team squad. After being named United’s young player of the year in 2010, Keane made his first-team debut against Blackburn the following season, but has not played for the club since. The United academy graduate missed the 2012-13 season with a knee-ligament injury and was loaned to Wigan, QPR and Sheffield Wednesday after his rehabilitation. Another player with his eye on a regular first-team place is Andreas Pereira, who scored twice in the 3-1 win over Spurs at Leigh Sports Village on Monday. The 20-year-old Brazilian scored against Ipswich on his debut in the Capital One Cup in September, but has only played five more matches since. The midfielder requested to play for the Under-21s on Monday to earn some game time, Martin revealed. “Yes, he is asking to play,” he said. last_img read more
