Brentford’s Ollie Watkins has shared a personal update on social media, and is raring to get back to footballing ways.
It’s been over two months now since the last Football League match was played in England, proving to be a rough ride for everyone involved with football fans and players both itching to get their weekends back.
Watkins has been the man about Brentford this season. Thomas Frank’s transformation of Watkins from a winger into a striker has proved to be fruitful, with Watkins scoring 22 goals in the Championship this season.
But the 24-year-old like a lot of us, is growing sick of the current situation, and wants to get back to regular training:
Training for Premier League sides is set to restart this month, and it’s likely that the Championship will replicate their return – players are to be in groups of no more than five, and are only to train for 75-minutes per day.
They’re regulations for the restart of training and will look to ease the players and staff back into their regular routines without causing any further spread of the virus.
It’s a sensitive few weeks ahead for the EFL and its 72 teams, with Brentford not knowing whether they’ll be adorning their next stadium with Premier League football next time round.

Watkins has been one of the league’s standout players this season, and much of that credit must go to Frank. He’s unlocked a naturally gifted poacher in Watkins, and expect him to one day make a name for himself in the top-flight, be it with Brentford or another suitor.
