It is not necessary to watch Premier at the stadium – England Manager

England manager Gareth Southgate will not be attending any Premier League games when the season gets back under way, and will instead watch them at home.

The English national team coach believes it is inappropriate and not essential for him or any members of his technical team to attend games as they will be shown of the Television.

This could mean Southgate, the former England defender and Crystal Palace man may not scout his players until next season and may also not see them in person until then, due to strict social distancing guidelines at Premier League training grounds and in England.

England were prepared to face Italy and Denmark as part of a Wembley double-header in March to prepare for their Euro 2020 campaign, but all international games have been postponed due to the global imbalance caused by the coronavirus.
Their last fixture was a 4-0 win away at Kosovo in the last game of the Euro 2020 qualifying group stages.

Premier League players are recently being tested often and any blast of positive cases will have to turn things otherwise.

All players and club staff are being tested for coronavirus twice a week ahead of the restart date of June 17, with this week’s sessions taking place on today and Friday.
Any player found positive would have to be kept in isolation for 14 days.
