Tyrone Mings latest player concerned about ‘Project Restart’

Aston Villa Star, Tyrone Mings, has become the latest player to express dissatisfaction at the resumption of the English Premier League.

In an interview with the Mail, the Aston Villa defender stated that players were then last stakeholders to be consulted on the matter. He went on to describe the resumption of the league as purely profit-driven.

Financially-driven motives

“The motives (for restarting the Premier League) are possibly 100 per cent financially driven rather than integrity driven,” Mings said in the interview with the Mail on Sunday.

“Project Restart is financially driven. I think everyone accepts that” Mings went on to say.

The defender stated that he was not against restarting the league. However, he wished players had more say in the matter.

No other choice

“I am all for playing again because we have no other choice. As players, we were the last people to be consulted about Project Restart, and that is because of where we fall in football’s order. That isn’t a problem.

“But if the FA and the EFL and the government and UEFA and the Premier League all say you are going back to play, it doesn’t make any difference what the players think because you are going back to play. It is, get in or get out.” Mings said.

The Premier League has set June 17th as the date for the league to return. Manchester City vs Arsenal will be among the first matches.

A growing list of concerned players

Mings joins Sergio Aguero, Danny Rose and Troy Deeney in expressing concern about restarting the league. Ngolo Kante had also been away from training for fear of the illness. however, he is back in training.

With the UK still recording high new infections, these players feel the restart as a little premature.

The UK is one of the worst-hit regions in Europe by COVID-19. The Isles have lost over 38,000 people to the virus, and infections are still growing.
