Taylor backs Wright's remarks about Van Gerwen: "The fella hasn't won anything this year"

Phil Taylor believes that Peter Wright is right about his statements regarding Michael van Gerwen which were made after his Super Series win recently.

Wright previously said that he would not win a TV tournament this year before backtracking on those comments in his pre-Premier League interview saying that he is only doing it to light a fire under him.

“He’s planted a seed in Michael’s head has he? I think he’s got a massive point and he’s right in what he’s saying," said Taylor to Betbull.

“The fella hasn’t won anything this year for some reason, I don’t know what it is. But maybe he’s just enjoyed the break. I’m sure he can win a tournament.

“But when it starts next week it’s going to be difficult for them, because it’s every day. It’s the fitness and the stamina that’s going to take its toll on people.

'The Power' backs Clayton and Price for PL Success

In terms of the Premier League Darts, Taylor is backing Jonny Clayton and Gerwyn Price to do well over the course of the darting roadshow.

“My predictions for next week are the two Welsh lads. Jonny Clayton has just finished work and he’s a plasterer which is a hard job. He’s got the stamina.

“I think Gerwyn Price always has had the stamina. He’s a good strong fit lad. Peter Wright might do well but I’d give a tip for the two Welsh lads. They’ve got that bit between their teeth where they want to win tournaments.”

Thoughts on bubble during Premier League

The Premier League Darts will be played at least likely in part behind closed doors once more due to the Coronavirus pandemic and he spoke about how he would cope in the bubble scenario.

“It would drive me crazy. I was watching the results from the Super Series in the same venue and the players who went out first round, like 2pm, you’d have to sit in your room until the next day. I would be suicidal.

“The only thing you can do is walk round the car park. Being stuck in there for so many days would drive me crackers.

“It’s every day, you’ve got to prepare and you’ve got to do it properly every day like it’s the World Championship final.
