Regardless of the UK remaining on lockdown for at least the immediate future, the Leicester City squad are reportedly going back to training in May.

If you can actually believe us – it’s only been one month since Leicester City’s last game before the coronavirus measures came into place. It feels like a significantly longer time without the Foxes than the 30-odd days since the 4-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Those Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy braces are a distant memory for this writer, if no one else. Everything seemed more simple to forecast and, obviously, plan then. We shall eventually return to normality – mark Foxes of Leicester’s words!

Leicester City to return to training

Though we have been without our beloved Leicester side in action for what seems like an eternity now, there is apparently an approximate return in sight. On Thursday evening reliable journalist John Percy of the Telegraph reported that the King Power team are planning a return to training in early May. Along with relegation candidates Norwich City.

Percy is fondly received by Midlands football supporters, particularly the Leicester fans, judging from the comments on social media. He rarely speculates and never embellishes: therefore we can trust the intention of the clubs to revert back to their mass practice sessions.

However, the government has the intention to continue with this lockdown for a foreseeable period. The aforementioned publication further states that the move back to training is in preparation for the proposed “resumption” of the Premier League in June.
