As things stand, there is no confirmation on when the Premier League season will resume, although the idea of playing all the games behind closed doors in June has been discussed (Sky Sports).

However, if that idea is to come to fruition, the clubs would likely want to begin training with their players sometime in the next month.

The Daily Mail have now reported that clubs have started investigating into how they would safely house their players if given the green light to resume training.

Since they would be required to keep the players in quarantine to protect them from the coronavirus, they are said to be exploring the possibility of installing temporary accommodation or booking up entire hotels for their use.

The report reveals that Tottenham, along with Manchester City and Liverpool, will have an advantage in this respect, as they already have the facilities in place to house the players at their existing training grounds.

Jose Mourinho has previously spoken in glowing terms about the facilities at Hotspur Way and compared the accommodation at the Tottenham’s training ground to a seven-star hotel (Football.London).

It looks as though those facilities could be put to good use in the coming weeks and months if training does resume.

If the Premier League does decide to complete the season behind closed doors, the only way that can be achieved is if the players are quarantined and tested regularly. So, having them stay at the club’s training ground until the season is completed seems like the best solution.
