Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham has expressed concerns over proposed plans to restart the football season.Copyright: BBC
Mr Burnham said he had concerns about the message restarting football would send out and whether it could be done in a way that protected the public.
The Premier League season has been left in limbo since earlier this year when matches were halted and league officials are discussing a numberof ways to restart, including the use of neutral venues.
The mayor said he wanted to see a "safety first approach", adding:Quote Message: There’s more issues than just a game at a neutral venue, there’s people potentially gathering at home to watch it.Quote Message: We all want to see it back but I just don’t think you can rush into a decision about this until things are much clearer.
