- Rio Ferdinand wants the current Premier League season cancelled
- This is because of the deadly coronavirus that is spreading around
- Cancelling the Premier League term will be a big blow for Liverpool
Rio Ferdinand has suggested that the Premier League board should cancel the 2019/20 season because of the threat and spread of coronavirus.
And should the Premier League chiefs agree to do that, then it will be a big blow for Jurgen Klopp and his wards at Liverpool who have been waiting to win the title for the past 30 years.
Coronavirus crisis has been a serious issue which has been affecting all humans on earth in one way or the other as many businesses have gone down.
Rio Ferdinand stated that his opinion about the Premier League season being cancelled has nothing to do with his rivalry with Liverpool when he was playing for Man United.
The 41-year-old Englishman explained that he is only thinking about the safety of the players who are the primary actors in the round leather game.
There have been talks that the remaining games this season in the Premier League should be played behind closed doors, but Rio Ferdinand stated that it won't be a nice idea.
Ferdinand explained that there are still going to be some players who will be exposed to the virus in their environment and will definitely spread to others on the pitch.
He added that the best solution is for the Premier League season to be void so that the body in charge can make plans for next season.
''I just think the Premier League should be void.Void it,''. Ferdinand explained according to ESPN.
Liverpool are still topping the Premier League table with 82 points, while Manchester United are occupying fifth position.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Manchester United icon Rio Ferdinand stated that although he had questioned why the club brought Odion Ighalo to Old Trafford, he has now changed his mind.
The ex-England defender stated that he was not too sure when United signed the 30-year-old on deadline day, but he now has another thought.
Ighalo has been impressive since moving to Manchester United scoring four goals in his three starts for the club.
Ferdinand who won the Premier League with Manchester United six times now believes Ighalo’s impact is very much needed at the club.
