Gareth Southgate has been doing regular Zoom calls to stay in touch with his England players. England boss Southgate has been talking to them regularly throughout the lockdown which has been well received by the players.
Southgate kept a respectful distance at first during the pandemic with the country gripped by a national disaster and players also gripped by worries about the Premier League and their futures.
But in the past few weeks, as the situation has improved, Southgate has been talking to different players, the established stars but also with fringe players and offering a few hope for the future. Euro 2020 fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Southgate has always been a good communicator and his personal touch – often talking about families and society in general rather than just football – has ensured he has stayed in touch. The worry for the England team and the Football Association has been that no-one knows yet when international fixtures will be up and running.
UEFA is adamant that the Nations League is still in their plans and, even though their next ExCo meeting on June 17 will focus on club football, things are looking much more positive for that tournament.
The feeling is that UEFA has gone out of their way to help club football so would hope if games are played in the autumn then players will be released to get internationals up and running.
Therefore, Southgate has done his best to stay in tune with his players even if it is done on a virtual basis rather than in the flesh as Euro 2020 should have been kicking off next week but for the coronavirus. League One players will be offered coronavirus tests on Friday with the EFL still facing a major dilemma.
It will be up to the players as to whether they take up the offer but League One clubs are at least going through the motions in case it restarts. A final decision on League One is now expected to be taken next Tuesday, June 9, and in all likelihood, the season will be curtailed and only play-offs will remain.
But there is still disquiet among some clubs and it would seem someone will be unhappy at whatever the outcome. Professor Jonathan Van-Tam earned praise for his speech and honesty during the Downing Street briefing last Saturday.
That probably did not come as much of a surprise to people in football as Van-Tam has, by all accounts, been outstanding on various conference calls. Euro 2020 fans can book the Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Van-Tam took part in a players’ call with the Professional Footballers’ Association and then also with BAME players and representatives and his reassurance and remarks were “a game-changer,” according to a source on both calls.
Andrew Flintoff will co-host his last talkSPORT breakfast show on Wednesday, June 10. This column revealed on May 21 the cricket legend was standing down in his role alongside main host Laura Woods on the hugely popular radio show.
Flintoff has been a big success but his Top Gear show is preparing to resume filming while the idea was that he would be involved until football comes back.
Radio station talkSPORT are talking to Watford striker Troy Deeney about a regular arrangement as co-host alongside Woods who does the show every Monday to Wednesday. It looks like it will not just be TV viewers who will be big winners in Project Restart.
