Players are “scared” about the prospect of returning to action amid the coronavirus pandemic, says Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
The Premier League is hoping to resume the season on 8 June, which would require players to be be back in full training by 18 May.
Top-flight clubs will meet on Friday to discuss options for the restart.
“The majority of players are scared because they have children and families,” said 31-year-old Aguero.
Speaking to Argentine TV station El Chiringuito, the Argentina international Aguero added:
“I’m scared but I’m with my girlfriend here and I’m not going to be in contact with other people. I’m locked in my house and the only person I could infect is my girlfriend.
“They’re saying that there are people that have it and don’t have any symptoms but still infect you. That’s why I am here at home. Maybe I have the illness and I don’t even know.”
“When one person is ill we will think ‘oh what’s happening here?’” he added. “I hope a vaccine will be found soon so that this all ends.”
