The coronavirus pandemic has seen professional football in England suspended until at least April 30.

Premier League clubs are due to meet on April 3 to discuss what the English top-flight does next.

“All the lads have been sent individual training programmes to carry out at home,” Keane told Talksport radio.

“It’s not easy because you’ve not got the normal equipment, you’ve just got to improvise and do what you can.

“So we’ve just got to keep that base level of fitness. As long as we get a few of weeks’ proper training before the subsequent game — and therefore the lads have worked hard within the meantime — we’ll be fine.”

The center-back said Everton’s backroom staff were monitoring the players’ progress.

“We go online with the sessions we’ve done, and they keep an eye on what we’re doing and gauge our fitness from that,” he added.

Keane, along with fellow players, manager Carlo Ancelotti and chairman Bill Kenwright, has also been speaking to isolated fans as part of the Liverpool club’s Blue Family campaign.

“We’re helping call at the community, which is brilliant,” said Keane, who spoke on the phone to 78-year-old Everton supporter Rod.

“It was great to hear the happiness in the voice when I gave him a call. He said it made his day, and it made mine also .”
