George Baldock says he and his team-mates are expecting to finish the Premier League campaign behind closed doors, as and when the suspension is lifted by the Government and relevant authorities.

Speaking to the media earlier this week, the popular wing-back is also hoping the return of football can be a positive in what is currently an unprecedented time for people across the region, country and world.

He remarked: "Watching the daily updates, the fatalities, the risk of infection, I think it's obvious that will happen (playing behind closed doors). It might mean that the wider public get to watch it on TV and that might bring a smile to a few people's faces, which would be brilliant.

"We understand that it will be behind closed doors and we will just get on with it and try to do our best. It's got to be safe for everyone and we fully understand that.

"Any bit of positivity that can be taken out of this situation will be brilliant. There's not a lot to cheer about at the minute, it's a strange time, so sitting back and taking anything from this situation would be fantastic.

"We hope that if football can resume, it might put a smile back on some people's faces."

Prior to the suspension of football across the globe and the postponement of Euro 2020 and all international fixtures, Baldock was being tipped for a call-up by Greece.

And it's something he still hopes will come to fruition in the future, he added: "I haven't heard anything, I think everything has been put on the back burner with no international games for a while.

"I think that's been put down the priority list from their perspective and understandably so, but I'm sure when we resume, it will get sorted."
