Below is a summary of the full article. Click here for the full version or go back to NUFC Live

'The majority of players are scared because they have family, they have children, they have babies, parents.

'We have to look at the Premier League as the global brand that it is and the reason it is that big is because of the quality of play and the quality of players that are in it and to be hindering ourselves with certain things like face masks and things, it is going to be off-putting, it is not going to be natural and people are going to be ripping them off in the middle of training.



I understand why people are desperate to get football on - I am one of those people - but it's got to be done in a sensible way, and at the right time, in a way that keeps not only the players and staff safe but there is so much that goes into a football game.



It's going to be very hard to mark players at a corner if there are social distancing measures in place.

It will be good for football, for the Premier League.

'But how many players have got asthma? How many players have got diabetes? How many members of staff have got diabetes or asthma or respiratory problems? Have they assessed all these things and are they willing to put those people, those players, those members of staff, at risk for football?'.
