Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has spoken about plans to resume the Premier League.

He admitted to United fans that football is not complete without supporters in stadiums.

And he acknowledged the Premier League would have to make decisions about resuming this season in coordination with the UK government.

The league is in lockdown due to COVID-19.

“I think we all agree that we want supporters back watching football at Old Trafford as soon as possible,” said Woodward per United’s official website.

“But that can only happen when we are advised it is safe to do so and, clearly, the Government has a major say in that.

“No decisions have been made yet but we think it is possible that the initial games, particularly the ones related to finishing or trying to complete this season, will probably have to be played behind closed doors. But that is not confirmed yet.

“We’re not necessarily happy about that. Clearly, football requires our fans in the stadium for it to be complete, but public health must come first and, as I said, this is down to the Government.”
