Players to do all their spitting before season can restart


The Premier League have asked that players complete all their oral and nasal spitting before the season can officially restart.

Because of the obvious viral implications, the Football Association (FA) have insisted that spitting on the pitch, or at each other, will not be allowed after the restart.

Peter Thape works for the FA, and he will visit training grounds over the next few weeks to collect all the spittal, and nose stuff.

‘The players will be standing two metres apart before spitting into my bucket,’ said Thape.

‘Big thanks to Sky Sports, who will be sponsoring the bucket, and BT Sport, who have the lid,’ added Thape.
