Moyes fears injury pile-up

David Moyes is worried the Premier League will suffer an injury pile-up if players are rushed back into action.

The West Ham United boss has spoken out as authorities continue to debate the best course of action when it comes to finishing the current campaign, which could see teams playing three times a week to fit in all the remaining fixtures.

Moyse told the 'Keys & Gray Show' on beIN Sports: "I think that four weeks would be ideal. But I think three weeks will be the maximum we get.

"Everybody's now talking about the injuries we're liable to pick up either during the three-week preparation time or during the period where it looks like we'll have to play an awful lot of games in a short period of time."

Although the Hammers found themselves above the relegation zone on goal difference before the campaign was suspended, boss Moyes thinks there are some positives from his second spell at the club.

He said: "I want to build a new, energetic, young team and I think we've just started that.

"With the signings we've brought in January, trying to freshen it up and given us a lot more youthfulness and direction."
