Sheffield Utd manager Wilder: I'll respect individuals who refuse to play

Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder says he would respect players if they weren't comfortable returning to football.

The Premier League is ramping up preparations to start back next month.

"If any individual players, took that decision and come to me saying it's not for me I would respect that," Wilder told BeIN Sports.

"Speaking to the players, speaking to the captain of the football club, not because of the position that we are in, [they want to continue the season].

"One of the slightly disappointing things is that people have taken a line based on their position in the division, which I think is a little disappointing."
