West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady thinks the current Premier League season should be declared “null and void” if the season can’t be finished due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Football Association, the Premier League, the English Football League, FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have all agreed to call a halt to competitive action with immediate effect until early April.
Liverpool are only two wins away from winning the Premier League title, while other teams have relegation and European qualification issues if the season is ultimately cancelled.
And Brady says the “only fair and reasonable” thing to do would be to declare the whole season “null and void”.
“Suspension or cancellation of the league was always a certainty,” Brady wrote in The Sun.
“There is no dodging the possibility that all levels in the EFL, as well as the Premier League, will have to be cancelled and this season declared null and void because if the players can’t play the games can’t go ahead.
“The PL hopes that an interlude of three weeks from today will enable it to restart but that may well be dreamland.
“So what if the league cannot be finished? As games in both the PL and in the EFL are affected, the only fair and reasonable thing to do is declare the whole season null and void.
“Who knows who would have gone down or come up if the games have not actually been played in full?
“A huge blow to Liverpool who might be robbed of their first title in 30 years.
“This will be discussed between the PL and the clubs next week at an emergency meeting.”
