Premier League restart could see in-game interviews as clubs look to avoid £170m TV rebate

Premier League restart could see in-game interviews as clubs look to avoid £170m TV rebate

Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings has meanwhile hit out at the Premier League’s plan to return to action.

He told the Daily Mail: “The motives are possibly 100 per cent financially driven rather than integrity driven.

“Project Restart is financially driven. I think everybody accepts that.

“I am all for playing again because we have no other choice.

“As players, we were the last people to be consulted about Project Restart and that is because of where we fall in football’s order of priority. That isn’t a problem.

“We got the option to come back to training and that’s fine because we didn’t have to but if the FA and the EFL and the government and UEFA and the Premier League all say you are going back to play, it really doesn’t make any difference what the players think because you are going back to play.

“It is get in or get out.”
