New Delhi, Jan 16: ISL clubs are facing problems on multiple fronts due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases and have called an urgent meeting on Sunday to discuss their concerns, sources in the know of things said.
After a spurt in COVID-19 cases in different clubs, several players have locked themselves up in their rooms and are not even coming out for training.
“Every club is worried about their players and support staff. The way COVID-19 is spreading and affecting the players’ mental and physical health, it would be very difficult for any club to field 11 players. One has to be realistic about the situation,” said a source.
The players are now getting worried about the league and some of them made critical remarks about ISL on social media.
Meanwhile, ISL said in a statement that the health and safety of all personnel in various bubbles remains our priority, and the League and clubs will continue to monitor the situation and act accordingly. (IANS)
