Raheem Sterling is still undecided and has shared his fears over the prospect of the Premier League returning to action.

Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling is the latest player to voice his concern over the Premier League re-starting the season.

After almost two months of absence, the league is set to resume following permission from the UK government earlier today.

While some clubs have expressed concerns over neutral venues, players could yet be another hurdle with Sterling the latest to share his thoughts.

“The moment we do go back it just needs to be a moment where it’s not just for footballing reasons, it’s safe for not just us footballers but the whole medical staff, referees,” The Man City star said on his YouTube channel.

“I don’t know how that’s going to work, but I feel like once that side of the people’s safety and the player’s safety is secured and their well-being is looked after then that’s the right time to go back in. Sterling added.

“Until then, I’m…how can I say…not scared but reserved and thinking what the worst outcome could be. At the same time I’m looking forward to it and I really want to get back but hopefully it will all be well when we do get back.”

Sterling becomes the third Manchester City player to publicly express his fears, with the other two being Aymeric Laporte and Sergio Aguero.
