Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has raised some very good points regarding the issues we’d face IF the Premier League declared the 2019/20 season ‘null and void’.
In a debate involving him, Kaveh Solhekol, Vicky Gomersall and Bryan Swanson – which is a frustrating watch given their arrogance and inability to grasp Dharmesh’s point – it’s debated whether it’s fair to give Liverpool the title given they are 25 points clear as things stand.
Dharmesh accepts that they are on course for the title, but feels it would set a dangerous precedent that others club will contest – i.e, if you hand Liverpool the title for being top, Man Utd will demand to be in the Champions League (as 5th is a UCL spot with City banned) and so on and so forth.
Watch the clip from Sky Sports News below:
We all know Liverpool would’ve won the title if the 2019/20 season was allowed to be completed as normal, but the points Dharmesh raises are very valid.
Yes it would EXTREMELY be harsh on Jurgen Klopp’s side, but clubs both at the top (who qualifying for Europe) and at the bottom (who are trying to stay up) will demand that their current positions are rewarded if Liverpool are made champions.
Surely if you haven’t mathematically won the league then you can’t be awarded it? Just like you can’t be relegated if you’ve not completed all 38 games of the season.
If it came to it, do you agree that the season either has to be played out or voided?
