Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has criticised the premier league plan to resume the season,claiming that the players have been treated like “lab rats”during project restart.
The Englishman told Lockdown Tactics podcast: “I’m dying to get back to football but just with the things that are happening right now, people are going through this coronavirus pandemic a lot worse than me, I don’t want to be complaining about everything.
“Just off the fact that people are suggesting we should go back to football, like we’re guinea pigs or lab rats. We’re going to experiment this phase and see if it works or not.
“I can just imagine people at home saying, ‘Well they earn that amount of money so they should be going back’.
“For stuff like that I think is it worth the hassle? I could be potentially risking my health for people’s entertainment and that’s not something I want to be involved in if I’m honest.”
During the first round of Premier League testing, six tested positive for the virus, including a watford player and two members of staff.
The season is expected to resume next month, despite the current health concerns.
