Sol Campbell has sent his best wishes to supporters and also explained how he’s in regular contact with the players through this difficult period.
The Blues boss stressed there is still a long way to go before any football can be played and that a mini pre-season will be needed when the time comes for an integration back into football.
He said: "Firstly, I hope all our supporters are keeping well, staying safe and sticking to the government guidelines.
"It’s a frustrating time for everyone, not just football, and we’re all feeling it but it goes without saying that our health and safety always comes first.
"We’ve been able to keep in touch with the players and the staff on zoom calls, much like the rest of the world I think, keeping connected which is good.
"Every two or three days we’ve been connecting with them to see where they are, how they’re doing.
"The players have all got their own programmes so hopefully they are professional enough to make sure they stick to them and do what they need to, as best they can in the difficult circumstances.
"We had a few injuries so we’ve been checking in to see how they are.
"It’s important to keep track of them to make sure their injuries are healing but it’s not easy. I’m sure everyone is finding the lockdown challenging to deal with in many ways.
"For sure we’re going to need a mini pre-season. We’re ready for that whenever that is.
"We’ve got to wait for this cloud to clear.
"We have to follow the regulations by the government, scientists, doctors and the people like that.
"Football will have to follow their lead.”
