Liverpool’s 30 year wait to be crowned English champions looks set continue even further after Premier League officials dramatically called a halt to this season’s proceedings indefinitely today. The coronavirus epidemic had already began to hit major sporting events all over the world including European football and now the Premier League is the latest casualty.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently an incredible 25 points clear of their nearest challengers Manchester City. Their first title since 1990 is tantalisingly close and genuine football fans of all clubs agree that if it was taken from them now it would be absolutely hilarious.
City manager Pep Guardiola sympathised with Liverpool but said he believes the right thing to do now is to abandon the season altogether and start again.
“It’s a shame for them but I think the season should start again and we will all go back to zero points. It’s a real tragedy and my sympathy goes out to Liverpool but at least this proves that God probably does exist.”
Chelsea fan Boris Johnson said he understands Liverpool football club’s frustration but added the British government have far more important things to consider.
“Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of the fans and rest assured we will do everything, absolutely everything in our power, to ensure those awful bloody scousers never get to win the English Premier League.”
