Watch: Hodgson says players are keen to get the season started

Roy Hodgson

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson admits he is eager for the Premier League season to resume.

The campaign is currently suspended due to the world coronavirus pandemic which has put all sport on hold.

Some Premier League clubs have opposed outstanding fixtures being played at neutral venues, while others have argued the season should be cancelled.

Veteran Hodgson – who recently signed a one-year contract extension – has spoken to the Palace players and staff and believes football must re-start once it’s safe to do so.

The 72-year-old former England boss is at a higher risk from coronavirus due to his age – but he adds that it won’t stop him from managing the Eagles.
