Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero says the Premier League's plan to resume the season amid the COVID-19 pandemic has left many players fearful for the safety of their families.

"The majority of players are scared because they have family, they have children, they have babies," the Argentine told El Chiringuito TV, according to Reuters.

"When we go back, I imagine that we will be very tense, we will be very careful, and the moment someone feels ill, you will think: 'What's gone on there?' It does scare me," he added.

Top-flight clubs will have a virtual meeting Friday to discuss the league's resumption plan, dubbed "Project Restart."
