Premier League stars could hold the key to restarting the football season, reports the Mirror.
Over the next 48 hours, teams will speak to their players to assess views about how they are willing to move on with the latest plans for restarting the initiative. They may end up vetoing the whole thing, after all.

Medics aren’t persuaded that the teams, despite being mostly optimistic in media, are going to restart games and Sergio Aguero and Glenn Murray likes have already spoken out.
