"They are training. But just a few of the players. We are not sure yet as to when the team will again play. The team just returned back to training on Tuesday," an insider reveals to Kickoff.com.

"It's not the entire first-team squad though that has returned, it's just those players who are feeling better.

"We are still putting together a team. They are just training now to prepare, but no one knows anything beyond that."

According to the source those who are talking about precedence being set before in similar cases, are misreading the situation.

"We don't think we'll lose the points, the protocols are not the same, we sent a letter where teams previously didn't send a letter. The team sent a letter before, so those are different situations."
