“But the most important thing of all is health, and getting back on the pitch ensuring players are fully fit is a very big call to make.”
Bevan also does not believe football should take precedence over NHS staff in testing, though Premier League clubs are ready to roll out testing as they step up their preparations.
He said: “The managers do not want to go back on the pitch unless players have been tested. But the government must confirm that is ok.
“The tests must be made available, if there is a shortage, to care workers, patients, the families of the NHS, and of course the NHS staff themselves. That where the testing must be first. Once that has happened, by all means lets access it in sport.”
