There was some positive news yesterday for football fans when the UK Government revealed that top-level sporting action could resume from the start of next month behind closed doors (Sky Sports).
There is no confirmation regarding the start date with the government yet to give full clearance and the Premier League clubs still yet to agree on all the details of ‘Project Restart’.
However, there is certainly renewed hope after the government released their road map for exiting the lockdown.
The Evening Standard reports that Tottenham plan on resuming full training on May 18 if the government gives the green light for the season to resume.
It is revealed that Steven Bergwijn has now travelled back to London ahead of a possible return to training next week.
The Dutch international was permitted to return home to the Netherlands at the end of March for the birth of his first child but was not rushed back as he was still nursing the ankle injury he sustained at Burnley in March.
However, it is said that the 22-year-old has now fully recovered from his injury and is ready to resume training.
Son Heung-min has also returned to London after completing his mandatory three-week national service in his native South Korea.
Son might miss the resumption of training as he could be set for a spell in quarantine as per the government’s regulations.

In case footballing action does get the green light to go ahead, it has already been mentioned that players will be tested twice every week. So assuming Son will be tested before training begins, it doesn’t make sense to force him to spend another spell in quarantine.
