Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has admitted that it is possible some players will not be available when Premier League football returns. Premier League clubs are continuing to discuss the possible return of football amid the coronavirus pandemic, after Government has indicated that sporting events may begin from June 1.
No decisions were made at that meeting regarding a possible resumption date, but discussions are ongoing, with some players expressing concerns about returning to action amid the coronavirus pandemic. But the Palace boss, who is 73 in August, insists that he will be in the dugout when football returns.
Roy Hodgson said: “Age is age. It’s how you feel really. Your age doesn’t necessarily relate to your fitness or how you’re feeling, or your capacity to do a job. As far as I’m concerned, I feel every bit as good as I did on March 10th, in fact probably a little bit better because this time has given me more of a chance to work on my fitness than I had during the time I was working on a daily basis. When I’m called back to work I shall be very happy to go back to work.”
