Lineker: The fairest thing would be to finish the league season

Recommended Posts

Gary Lineker is the latest Football luminary to have his say over the halted Premier League season.

Opinions differ over whether the 2019/20 season should continue, or be voided with the Covid-19 outbreak currently sweeping through the country.

Naturally some people have vested interests concerning their reasoning, but speaking as someone not directly involved, Lineker believes that the season should be concluded which will give Liverpool the opportunity to win the title in their own right.

The Mirror via Talksport reported the Match of the Day host as saying:

I think ideally we’d like to finish the season, I think that would make sense.

“But this whole situation is so fluid and much more important than anything, it’s difficult to know when it’s going to go away.

“We could be able to play again by June, it might have calmed down enough, whether that will be behind doors, which is not really what football’s about, but it would help to finish the leagues.

“That’s the thing everybody would want to happen, except perhaps some supporters who really don’t like Liverpool.

“I think that would be the fairest thing."

The Premier League is currently on hold until the end of April, but with the virus still incredibly prominent, it appears certain that date will be changed when the Premier League, PFA and EFL meet tomorrow.

Many clubs in the lower leagues are doing it especially tough in this unprecedented time.  

Lineker said that the powers that be need to find the starting date that suits all parties.

And he also believes that this season can intertwine with the new campaign.

“The one thing I’ll say at the moment is the players are having their rest now and it’s not the rest they would want, it’s not the holiday they would want, but once they get back and have a couple of weeks training to start the season again, they certainly wouldn’t need another pre-season between the seasons.

Wasnt Lineker saying a few weeks ago the season should be cancelled? If so, why's he changed his tune?

No Champs League for Leicester that's why the shithouse.
