Kevin de Bruyne SPEAKS about the FUTURE of the Premier League season

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne believes it will be better not to continue the season. 

Belgian international emphasizes the possible consequences players will face for the next season, if they spend their summer playing 3 matches in a week. 

“I have no idea if we will still play. In England, they want to wait as long as possible with a decision.” De Bruyne said (cited by LiverpoolECHO)

“But, as a footballer, that is not evident. You’re idle for six weeks, normally you need a preparation of three to four weeks.

“If we restart immediately, everyone will be injured after a few games. That cannot be the intention.

“There’s a lot of money involved and I think waiting so long to make a decision can cause problems for next season.

“It’s not that we have a very long summer break and can just postpone everything.

“I would be sorry to stop early after such a good season, but if it avoids problems towards next year, it must be done.”

Earlier, Tottenham forward Harry Kane has also supported the idea of finishing the season, which could prevent Liverpool from winning their first ever Premier League title and first top flight title in 30 years.
