Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish says the Premier League must “have a go” at concluding the 2019-20 season in the face of the coronavirus pandemic after enduring his own battle with the disease.
The Premier League has been on hiatus since mid-March, but is expected to return in mid-June after being cleared to do so by the UK government.
Teams have returned to training in small groups this week and are waiting on approval from the authorities to resume contact training.
Dalglish, however, is confident clubs can find a way to finish the season without putting public health in danger.
“If the other countries are getting up and having a go, I think the least you can do is have a go,” the former Liverpool star and manager told the Hat-Trick Podcast.
“Obviously, bearing in mind that health and security is very important for players and everybody else involved.
“Get that right, see what happens and see how you feel, then you decide if you’ll call it quits.”
