A Premier League’ circuit split ‘to tackle COVID-19 would lead to fixture congestion, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he did not see the importance of the Premier League briefly suspending the action to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
West Brom head coach Sam Allardyce has called for a circuit split, a tight set of restrictions designed to reverse the tide of the pandemic, but Solskjaer is unsure what benefit it would bring.
“As a club and as a group we’ve been good at following the protocols,” Solskjaer said after United’s 1-0 victory over Wolves on Tuesday.
“That’s part of the work. I can’t see the advantage of getting a circuit break because when will we play the games? We all know it’s so hard this year, but if you stop playing more games, I don’t think it’s going to make a huge difference, it could be a long one. When are we going to finish the season? “
