"Clubs won’t have the money to go and spend this and that either and you’ll find that youngsters will get a chance"
Paul Lambert says the only certainty amid the uncertainly of next season will be that youngsters will get a chance.
As Town wait on an indication on when the 2020/21 campaign may start, Blues’ boss admits it’s been a really challenging time from the moment he sent the players home on March 13 as COVID-19 put football on hold.
“The health and safety of people is obviously the most important thing through all of this,” Paul told the Club website.
“From a job point of view though, it’s been as hard a challenge as I’ve had as a manager for different reasons.
“There are a lot of questions out there and not many answers. We are continuously in the unknown. You can’t plan for anything and it’s been as frustrating as hell.
“Going forward, I think this will change the face of the game though. It could actually prove to be a beneficial for football long term. It might bring everyone together.
“Clubs won’t have the money to go and spend this and that either and you’ll find that youngsters will get a chance. Supporters will be fine with that. I’ll be fine with that.
“We have got a good group of youngsters coming through here and we will look to develop them into first-team players over time.”
