Newcastle medical chief Catterson: Players excited to return

Newcastle United medical chief Paul Catterson says the players are excited to be returning to training.

While on-loan Tottenham fullback Danny Rose has lashed out at the return of football, Catterson says the rest of the squad are in high spirits.

He told Sky Sports: "We have got to rule against complacency and remain vigilant in all of this to keep that good work going.

"It just takes one or two results coming out to cause a bit of worry in the group.

"Different players have different worries about it so it's about trying to reassure them and show them that we are trying to be as safe as possible.

"There's a little bit of excitement [at training] because it looks like we are on the right track and football will hopefully be restarting again."
