    Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham has expressed concerns over proposed plans to restart the football season.

    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.
