Mark Bonner admits there’s little Cambridge United can do at the moment for players including Reggie Lambe who will be out of contract this summer, but insists the club will do all it can to support them.
With football having been suspended for more than a fortnight due to the spread of the coronavirus, and unlikely to start again for some time, thoughts will inevitably turn to the futures of players whose deals finish at the end of June.
The situation is made more complicated by the fact that the EFL remains committed to seeing the season to a conclusion, however long it takes, which could take games beyond the date those contracts end.
“There’s players out of contract at the end of the season and all the things that go along with it,” said head coach Bonner. “But it’s not something at the moment we’re looking at.
“The senior management and board of directors are working incredibly hard to make sure the club is best placed to deal with this situation, so we need to support one another and realize that football takes a back seat for a little bit.
“We’ll all do our bit to try to support the community as we have done this week while we wait to see when the next game will take place, and when we can return to work, we’ll be committed as always.”
