Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian insisted he had “no fear” of resuming the Premier League season amid a coronavirus epidemic.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool were 25 points clear at the top of the table when the promotion was suspended due to COVID-19 in March.

Reports suggest the season could return to mid-June, although there have been claims that some players are apprehensive about returning.

Adrian, who has made 18 appearances for Liverpool this season, said he was ready to return.

“There is no fear at all,” he told Cop Sevilla on Wednesday.

“There is respect, a lot of respect and responsibility. It’s a very serious situation, but we are professionals.

“We’re here for what we’re doing.”

With more than 229,000 confirmed cases and the death toll exceeding 33,000, the UK has been hit hard by the coronavirus.

Adrian, 33, said the UK was still working on the presence of CVD-19, which has killed more than 297,000 people worldwide.

“This week’s meetings were very important. There is still one among the captains, directors and coaches of the Premier League,” he said.

“They have given us the green light to train in small groups from next Monday and the league is expected to start in mid-June.

“But at the moment the situation here is almost serious. You have to solve the death toll.”
