The issues that Premier League faces on the return day

Bundesliga has many problems coming back after the pandemic period, which is the lesson that football makers of the fog of origin need to draw first when the Premier League reappears.

The Premier League season 2019/20 will return on June 17 here. The 30th round of the Premier League starts with a match between Sheffield United and Aston Villa, while Man City host Arsenal. The remaining matches will take place on June 19 and 20 respectively.

Erling Haaland’s knee injury in the match against Bayern Munich shows the problem that top football leagues face when returning after a long break. According to statistics from sports medicine expert Joel Mason, the Bundesliga injury rate has increased by 250% compared to the time before the pandemic.

Muscle injuries, often caused by overload, have skyrocketed. The continuous density of the Bundesliga to keep up the season in the future is also the reason many players feel nervous.

After the Premier League has determined a return date on June 17, it is expected that clubs will have to play continuously for less than two months to finish the season. The culture of tackling, the impact of English football is also the reason many experts fear injuries will soar.

The Premier League is famous in the world because the speed of the match is always high, and it will be a bad advertisement for the tournament if the speed of the game becomes slower than usual.

In the Bundesliga, according to statistics from the Daily Mail, the dribbles of the players also decreased. This may stem from the physical basis of the players, when they can not perform as many acceleration stages as before the pandemic.

The pitch without the audience also greatly affected the match. Many fans have complained about the gloomy atmosphere in the last match Dortmund – Bayern. The Premier League is always famous for its full audience and lively atmosphere, which will certainly affect the viewer experience.

Another problem that many Premier League teams are proposing is the loss of home advantage. Statistics in the Bundesliga show that only 18.51% of the home team won when the tournament returned after the outbreak, while the previous figure reached 42.79%.

This will be detrimental to more teams having to play more home games for the rest of the season. Earlier, six teams in the bottom of the Premier League have opposed the idea of ​​playing on neutral ground. Bournemouth, the club currently ranked 18th in the standings, is an outcry against the idea of ​​neutral pitch.

Barca, Real suffered the largest losses due to Covid-19

The pandemic caused the top two Premier League teams to lose hundreds of millions of dollars in the late 2019-2020 season.

The Deutsche Bank report shows that football clubs will lose between 13% and 30% of their total earnings this season. Barca is the most affected. The Catalonia club will lose between $ 132 million and $ 285 million, as long as the season is delayed.

Real ranked second, with losses from 110 million to 253 million dollars. Followed by Man Utd (USD 99 million to USD 236.5 million), PSG could lose up to 214.5 million USD, Man City and Liverpool respectively from 82.5 million to 203.5 million USD, Juventus could lose up to 154 million USD.

The money can be recovered in two seasons, although it depends on when the fans return to the field. On the optimistic side, losses can range from 4% to 13%, mainly due to sponsors of the economic crisis and the decline in fan revenues. Meanwhile, in pessimistic terms, the damage increased from 27 to 48%.

The forecast shows that clubs can recover from the 2021-2022 season, because the economic crisis affects not only sports, but the society as a whole.

Because the clubs are not able to maintain the same revenue as before, the next transfer season can become bleak. Some clubs are more likely to have to exchange players.

Man Utd owes more than half a billion dollars

In the first three months of 2020, Man Utd’s debt increased by 42% compared to the end of last year, from USD 155 million to USD 525 million.

According to the financial report released yesterday, the reason for the sharp increase in Man Utd’s net debt is the decline of cash and cash equivalents, and the adverse fluctuations of the pound exchange rate compared to USD.

Man Utd also suffered heavy losses in the last three weeks of March, when matches were suspended due to the pandemic. Under the influence of Covid-19, they lowered their estimated revenue to under 710 million USD.

The report also said that the impact of Covid-19 and the measures to prevent the spread will continue to disrupt business operations in many ways, of which the most serious impact is the revenue of television rights and match organizer revenue.
