The Sun newspaper of England reported some Premier League players are ready to “rebel” for a special Premier League schedule 2020 reason.
UEFA has also “paved the way” when moving EURO 2020 to 2021.
Concerns about the English Premier League 2020 season will end sooner than the final plan has been resolved. After Thursday’s meeting (March 19), the tournament organizers decided to postpone until April 30 to wait for the Covid-19 epidemic to go away with the promise of “the tournament is definitely completed”. Before that, UEFA also “opened the way” when transferring EURO 2020 to 2021.
However, this worry was just over when another headache came. According to sources from The Sun (England), some players playing in the Premier League are “ready to rebel” if they have to play too heavy Premier League schedule. According to writer Dave Kidd, many English players have contacted the British Professional Football Association (PFA) to secure a break between seasons.
The source said a number of players on the Southgate coach’s expected list at EURO 2020 are concerned that they will have to play continuously for 14 months without proper rest. This comes from the FA decided to abolish the professional season rule that must be completed before 1/6. Therefore, it is likely that by the beginning of July, the season of 2019/20 can end.
Meanwhile, the Premier League schedule for the 2020/21 season has not changed and is still expected to start on August 8, 2020. This means the players only have more than a month off between the two seasons, but that’s just the beginning of the story.
Disorder of Premier League schedule and fixture cause consequences for the next season
EURO finals are expected to start on 11/6 and end on 11/7/2021. This means that the European leagues must end before May 2021 for the national teams to focus on preparing for the tournament. And if the Premier League player goes to the European finals this time, they have less than a month to rest before entering the Premier League 2021/2022 season.
As such, it is likely that there will be cases where the player is only allowed to rest for less than two months over 3 consecutive seasons. Therefore, the worry of the players is completely grounded. Playing in a “cross-country” manner, exhaustion and injury are inevitable, so the players are looking for the English football federation to adjust their game properly for the coming years.
The schedule in the UK is one of the “heaviest” in Europe, having to play 1 national tournament and 2 cups. The English Premier League 2020 has also had winter holidays in recent years. UEFA is advising the FA to give up the League Cup just like France did to reduce the schedule for players but there has been no move from the English Football Federation.
