Chelsea manager Frank Lampard believes it is unrealistic to “push and push” players to maintain their fitness levels during the coronavirus pandemic with no concrete timetable as to when football will return.

Football in England has been suspended until at least 30 April, but that date is expected to be pushed back at a meeting of Premier League clubs next week.

The Blues are continuing to train at home in line with government guidelines on social distancing.

“It is very difficult at the moment because we have got nothing concrete in front of us,” Lampard said in a FaceTime interview with Chelsea’s official club app.
