Warne pre-season plans scrapped

Last updated : 26 March 2020 By Millersmad

With the season already a total mess due to the Coronavirus break, planning for next season is suffering a knock on.

The gaffer had already got his pre-season plans in place but telling the Yorkshire Post, Paul Warne gave the latest on his plans.

“That was in place and I am presuming that is kiboshed. In fairness, that is the least of my worries. The positive is all the games will be organised (in the future) as there will still be pre-season games, even if it is three months later down the line."

“Hopefully, once we know that the season ends and the next one starts, all those things are pretty easy to shift down the calendar a little bit. We had organised everything – but the whole recruitment and transfer window is going to change. Considering what is going on in the world, that will be quite manageable when that does come around.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if the deadline and starting date got put back again in April, But hopefully, we will get through the worst and life comes back to normal. It is a difficult time for a lot of people and I hope they get through it the best they can."

“It is just a really surreal place. In fairness to the government and EFL, they are all trying to do what they think is right. But no-one knows at this time what is right and wrong. In two years time, we might look back and say: ‘maybe we should have done this and that.’ I don’t think there’s an answer which will please everybody. If they cancel the league, then it would be hugely disappointing. But in the bigger scheme of things, we can look back at 2020 in a few years to come and hopefully say we all lived through it and it all got back to normal.”
