Will the Premier League season be FINISHED? FA chairman gives his VERDICT

FA chairman Greg Clarke believes the Premier League season will not be finished amid the coronavirus pandemic, The Times reports. 

England was one of the countries that intended to play the games of football leagues. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has decided not to cancel the sporting events in the country, including the Premier League. 

However, after Arsenal and Chelsea have officially confirmed Mikel Arteta and Callum Hudson-Odoi have tested positive for COVID-19, an emergency meeting has been organized, which eventually was followed by the decision to postpone the matches until April 3. 

At the moment, no one is sure that the football tournaments will restart in April. Clarke is among those people that believe there is no way this season would be finished. 

Under those circumstances, there is yet uncertain whether Liverpool will be given the title or the results will be nullified. 

The Premier League have suspended the season until April 3 amid the growing coronavirus crisis.

The FA, Premier League, EFL and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until 3 April at the earliest.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi have both tested positive for coronavirus.

Everton and Bournemouth have become the latest Premier League clubs to be affected by the coronavirus outbreak as the pandemic continues to hit the world.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “Above all, we wish Mikel Arteta and Callum Hudson-Odoi speedy recoveries, and everyone else affected by COVID-19.

“In this unprecedented situation, we are working closely with our clubs, Government, The FA and EFL and can reassure everyone the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority.”
