Coronavirus in Sport LIVE: Lampard gives Premier League warning, latest on return, Man Utd and Arsenal facing – The Sun

The PL are having a CV nightmare . They keep spouting Health First but then brief constantly “We have to Re-Start”
I’d respect them more if they said “We accept the increase in Health Risk but it’s one we are willing to take” . They won’t as they are frightened to death!<\/p>— Gary Neville (@GNev2) May 3, 2020<\/a><\/blockquote> <\/div><\/div>

GOOD MORNING SPORTS FANS<\/strong><\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Or should that be G’Day – as the Premier League is looking to go Down Under to play their final 92 matches.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Talks are ongoing for a stunning scheme for the matches to take place in four stadiums in Perth, Western Australia.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

English agent Gary Williams has masterminded the plan after Red Devils legend Gary Neville put forward the idea that the matches could take place abroad.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Williams has been in contact with the Australian government and Ministry for Sport to get their backing for the eye-catching idea.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

It has already been put to the Prem, while several clubs have also been alerted and are happy to oblige.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

One club official said: “We go on world tours in pre-season. This is no different. And the climate in Australia is ideal just now.”<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Williams’ eight-point proposal to the Prem is:<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

1. Fly all 20 squads to Perth. Airlines would be delighted with the custom and are available.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

2. Base them in their own hotels, with facilities, and isolate for up to a fortnight if they have to. Perth is currently in tourist ‘off season’ anyway.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

3.  Play games at several top venues in the city, behind closed doors or even with a limited number of local fans.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

4. Slash the number of medical tests needed, possibly only two in total rather than the proposed twice a week.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

5.  Remove the need for police to control closed venues in England when the games are played.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

 6.End concerns about travel arrangements and hotel stays. The clubs would use the same bases, close to grounds, for the duration.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

7. Allow families to travel over towards the end of the campaign to give them a much-needed break in a safe environment.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

8.  Easy for TV coverage, with various kick-off times to suit English schedules.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Perth has four major sporting venues that can be used — Optus Stadium (capacity 65,000), Perth Oval (20,500), cricket’s WACA (24,500) and Joondalup Arena (16,000).<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Brummie Williams said: “I have had discussions with contacts at Premier League clubs and they like the idea. I have also spoken with government officials and they are enthusiastic. We are speaking again this week.<\/p>\n<\/p>\n

“Everybody is safe here. The government has lifted many restrictions.”<\/p>\n”,”raw”:”

<\/strong>OZIL DISHES OUT £80K AID<\/strong><\/p>\n

Mesut Ozil has shown his generosity once more by donating £80,000 to help Muslims whose Ramadan has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.<\/p>\n

The Arsenal midfielder – who played for Germany but is of Turkish descent – will help provide food and aid for 16,000 people throughout the holy month, which began on April 23. <\/p>\n

Charity organisation Turkish Red Crescent can now provide iftar, the evening meal which Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast with, to families across Turkey and Syria, via 2,000 packages.<\/p>\n

Group member Kerem Kinik said: “At the Red Crescent, we stand by those in need 365 days a year.”<\/p>\n

Of course, we do this thanks to donations made by philanthropist friends who follow our work. As donations increase, we will be able to reach even more people in need.<\/p>\n

“Thanks to our brother Mesut, we will be able to deliver packages provided to people in need – delivering them as soon as possible.”<\/p>\n

Ozil secretly pays for 1,000 kids’ operations and feeds 100,000 homeless people. <\/p>\n

But he was one of three players who did not accept Arsenal’s proposal of a squad-wide pay cut to help them financially amid the Covid-19 crisis.<\/p>\n”,”raw”:”

<\/strong>BOTCH-IT RESTART<\/strong><\/p>\n

Bosses at a Premier League club have told their players they can OPT OUT of Project Restart for health and safety.<\/p>\n

The revelation came on the players’ WhatsApp group which was initially between the 20 club captains — but has swelled to over 100 members.<\/p>\n

LOCK-DAN<\/strong><\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Daniel Dubois has used his heavy hands to create a family home just in time for all the gang to hunker down for lockdown. <\/p>\n<\/p>\n

The 22-year-old British heavyweight champ raced to a 14-0 record before the Covid-19 virus shut down sport around the world. <\/p>\n<\/p>\n

His mouthwatering clash with fellow Londoner Joe Joyce — originally set for April 11 — has been postponed until the Government and British Boxing Board of Control relaunch the sport. <\/p>\n<\/p>\n

But that has given the Peacock Gym prodigy the chance to move his dad Dave and four siblings out of their cramped Greenwich home and into a spacious Hertfordshire pile. The upgrade means Dynamite Dan can train alongside his fighting siblings Caroline, Prince and Solomon -in their private gym and still have enough room for some much needed rest. <\/p>\n<\/p>\n

Dubois said: ““Everyone is here together, to support each other and it’s great to accomplish this first part of the dream.” <\/p>\n”,”raw”:”
