Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin has said Liverpool Football Club should be awarded the English Premier League title even if the campaign is cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ceferin made the comments on Monday while speaking to Slovenian sports daily Ekipa. He said:
There is no way Liverpool could end without the title. If the matches are played, then they will almost certainly win it – theoretically, they still haven’t earned the title but they almost certainly will,” Ceferin told Slovenian sports daily Ekipa.
In case the matches cannot be played, we will need to find a way…
And, once again, I see no scenario according to which Liverpool would not be the winners. I realise fans might be disappointed if the match is played in an empty stadium or even if it is resolved around a table, but I believe that one way or another they will win the title.
Liverpool appeared set to secure a first English top-flight title in 30 years when the season was suspended last month.
The UEFA Champions League holders are sitting 25 points clear of second-placed Manchester City and need to win two of their remaining nine matches to be crowned English champions.
