Leicester City midfielder Ayoze Perez has told ESPN that it would be "dangerous" for the Premier League to make footballers play a lot of games in a short space of time in order for the season to be completed.
The Premier League has been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus after provisional plans to resume competitive fixtures at the beginning of May were abandoned last week. Organisers said that the league will only continue "when it is safe and appropriate to do so."
Perez, 26, said that cramming a number of games into a short period of time could be "dangerous" on player's bodies, but he insisted that the Premier League must find a way to complete the remainder of the season.
"We may have to play nine games in a short period," Perez told ESPN. "It's dangerous because of injuries but obviously we have to finish the league somehow so it could be an option and most players will be up for it and will agree to that, but we will see.
"We aren't the ones who have to make a decision though, we just have to adapt ourselves when that moment comes."
Perez joined Leicester from Newcastle last summer and has been a regular starter in manager Brendan Rodgers' side, making 25 league appearances and scoring seven goals.
Leicester are in position to qualify for the Champions League for the second time in the club's history as they sit third in the Premier League, four points behind second-place Manchester City.
The Spanish midfielder also said that the atmosphere at the club is the reason for the side's success and said it explains how they were able to win the 2015-16 Premier League title despite their historic underdog status.
"After this season, people will start looking at us in a different way," he added. "Obviously, it was an unbelievable achievement what the guys did a few seasons ago but people think it could've been a one off season where everything went their way.
"But as soon as you're inside the club and know everything about it, you realise everything happens for a reason.
"They way they work, they way the see people and treat each other is important and you don't see that very often in every club so it's special, you feel like a family and that's important in football."
