Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said the league is "as confident as we can be" about restarting in June.

The Premier League has been suspended since March 13th and June 12th has been identified as a possible date to restart.

"We've taken the first step," Masters told BBC Sport.

"It's great for everybody, including the fans, to see our players back on the training ground."

Liverpool has a 25-point lead at the top of the table over Manchester City.

"We wouldn't have taken the first step to get back to training if we weren't convinced we had created a very safe environment for our players," he said.

"It is the first step and we have to be sure when we go to contact training we have completed those processes.

"We have done everything we possibly can to make return to training as safe as possible," he added.

"We think it is safe to return. We have to respect players' decisions not to return to training. I would be comfortable to return to training."
