Leeds United have seen their progression towards restarting the season held up with the EFL deciding to put back the return of contact training, according to Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

On Friday, the EFL released a statement that said the EFL board has agreed upon a way to decide the season if play cannot go on but they still need the approval of the clubs.

The EFL intends to keep promotion, relegation and play-offs in place if the season is forced to be curtailed and another meeting will be held on June 8 to rubber-stamp proposals.

It means that nothing was properly agreed in the meeting on Wednesday, which pushes the Championship season restart further behind the Premier League, which is due to restart nine days after the next EFL meeting.

According to Nixon, some clubs have reacted angrily to the EFL’s new statement while the Sun journalist has also added that the EFL’s sluggish approach means that although contact training will resume, it has been pushed back.

The Telegraph reported that contact training will resume next week for Championship clubs but that might not be the case any more.

Leeds will be itching to get back to playing as soon as possible so they can finish the job of winning promotion to the Premier League.

They need to be allowed to do contact training for a few weeks beforehand so they are ready for that to happen.

Let’s hope that doesn’t hurt Marcelo Bielsa’s plans too much.
