Premier League teams have started training in a more familiar manner after players voted for contact training to resume.
The players had voted on Tuesday and it was ratified on Wednesday, which allowed teams to return to contact training on Thursday.
Newcastle United, West Ham, Sheffield United and Manchester United became the first Premier League teams to start contact training as their players and teams’ social media handles shared clips of their Thursday training sessions.
However, not every team has resumed contact training and Mail Sports claims that some teams would wait until another two rounds of coronavirus test results have returned before they would move to phase two of Project Restart.
The return to contact training would come as a huge boost to the Premier League as the organisation has been working hard to assure teams that it is safe for them to return to training and prepare for the completion of the league season.
Their efforts seem to be working so far as teams have been voting in favour of steps to get back to action and even players like Troy Deeney who were against a return to action appear to have changed their minds.
