Project Restart: Burnley defender James Tarkowski says team backs Premier League return

Burnley defender James Tarkowski has said that there is a general consensus among his teammates that the Premier League should return.

His sentiments come at a time when some players in the Premier League have raised concerns about the return with the lot having the likes of Raheem Sterling of Manchester City and Jack Wilshere of West Ham.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Tarkowski said: "As long as there are safety precautions and testing can be done to make sure everyone's as safe as possible, I want to go back and play.

"I understand that people and players will have different views on this situation, but I don't think whatever decision is made is going to please everyone.

"My personal view is that if everyone is as safe as possible, I'm willing to go back and play. If I was worried about anything, or if I didn't feel comfortable playing, then I wouldn't be saying that I am.

"There are reasons why certain people want to go ahead with certain things, but I just love playing football.

"I've not spoken to every player individually. We've had a few group conversations where a few people will pipe up and say what they think and the general consensus is that we do want to go back and play to finish this season.”

The defender has been capped twice by England and has been one of the consistent figures in the Burnley squad.
