Fan Believes He's Found A Way To Solve The Premier League's Coronavirus Dilemma
A football fan thinks he has found a way to solve the Premier League's current coronavirus dilemma.
Sam, who is a Manchester City fan, spoke to Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy on talkSPORT's 'The Sports Bar' on Tuesday morning to discuss what should be done to combat the situation.
The Premier League has been suspended until April 3 at the earliest and many have questioned if the league campaign will resume.
But Sam believes that the Premier League should end the 2019/20 campaign now and current leaders Liverpool should be given a 25 point head start at the start of next season.
"Obviously it would be ideal if they could finish the season, but I think they're going to struggle," he said.
"Liverpool have smashed it and they should be champions, they deserve to win it.
"But if it can't be finished, why don't they kill the league off now and carry it over into next season?
"So, Liverpool would start with a 25-point lead, and the same in the Championship, League One, League Two, National League, all the way down.
"Just start off a fresh season and roll one season into two. Then you can still fit all your cup games in and just carry it all on.
"I think that might be the best solution."
With that being said, Liverpool are set to be confirmed as this year's Premier League champions even if the coronavirus ends the season early, according to reports.
The Telegraph claim that Jurgen Klopp's side are likely to be crowned champions no matter what as well as an interesting twist in terms of promotion.
The proposed plan is to promote current Championship top two of Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion and have next season be a 22 team league.
As a result, it means the 2020/2021 season would see five teams relegated from the Premier League.
It's also rumoured that next year's EFL Cup could be postponed for a season to allow for extra space in the fixture list.
There is currently no regulations for the Premier League to follow in relation to what happens if the season doesn't finish.
