Liverpool to 'monitor the situation', as club suspends training
It was sort of inevitable, considering the amount of players being diagnosed through the Premier League, or being made to self-isolate.
There's also the small fact that the league has been postponed. But LFC has suspended all training indefinitely, with players given personal training regimes to carry out at home.
The club statement read: "Following a meeting of Premier League club shareholders on Friday morning, it was unanimously decided to suspend the competition until next month, subject to medical advice and conditions at the time.
"Liverpool will work with the club’s medical team and other relevant authorities to monitor the situation and decide upon a date to return to Melwood to give the squad the best chance of preparing for their next fixture."
The club also added that there was no information - as yet - about when the players would actually resume training.
Of course, it's hard to know when the Premier League will actually recommence, despite the announcement on Friday that it would be suspended for the next few months. That date (3rd April) is, at best, a tentative assumption.
Considering that there have been many more cases reported today, along with a further 10 deaths, we may well see the season postponed for longer. Or possibly cancelled, even.
