Liverpool’s march to Premier League glory was momentarily halted after the outbreak of coronavirus
– The Reds are currently topping the league charts with a 25-point advantage over second-placed Man City
– With the league suspended over coronavirus, there has been suggestion the Anfield dwellers should be crowned league champions
– But UEFA contends such a move would jeopardize the league further in regards to European qualification and relegation
UEFA president Alexander Ceferin has dismissed the idea of having Liverpool crowned Premier League champions amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The Premier League season is currently in limbo with fixtures suspended in a bid to curb spread of the deadly virus
Be that as it may, there are those hoping the season can be concluded prematurely and Liverpool handed the crown.
However, Ceferin has set the record straight, insisting UEFA have committed to getting the domestic season finished by the end of June.
“I’ve saw and heard some again fake news that UEFA will advise leagues to finish the championships now and decide that the winners are the ones who are number one now,’ Ceferin said at a UEFA meeting on Tuesday, March 17.
