Liverpool EPL Champion? The Season Should Be CANCELLED And Give Them The Trophy – Holebas
The Greek international believes it makes no sense to hold rescheduling the current campaign and the Reds are clear champions.
Watford defender Jose Holebas has called for the Premier League season to be cancelled and Liverpool handed the league title.
The coronavirus disaster presently has the opposition indefinitely suspended with doubts over whether or not the current campaign will be completed.
Premier League clubs and UEFA are determined for domestic seasons to be completed in some form however, with no clear solution when it comes to awarding titles and determining relegation.
Despite those issues, Holebas has declared that attempts to reschedule the opposition makes no sense and that Jurgen Klopp’s side should definitely be announced as champions.
“In my opinion, you have to cancel the season, for me that is exceptionally clear,” Holebas told Sky Sports.
“I would give Liverpool the title, they deserve it and have played extremely good soccer this season.
“They are absolutely the number one team. I think it makes no sense to keep rescheduling all the time.”
While the Reds are 25 points clear at the Premier League summit, the situation at the bottom of the table is far much less clear with six clubs battling in opposition to the drop before the competition was suspended.
Holebas’ own club are presently seventeenth and solely sit out of the relegation zone due to a superior goal difference to Bournemouth. Aston Villa and Norwich are the other clubs presently facing the drop as things stand and they will be desperate for the season to be resumed to ensure their survival.
Higher up the table, the race for the top 4 stays wide open too with Wolves striker Raul Jimenez backing his side to make the cut should they get the chance.
Udinese sporting director Pierpaolo Marino currently suggested that the Premier League will make an forthcoming call to end the season.
“The Belgian Federation has already sanctioned the end of their league, regardless of the threats of sanctions from UEFA,” Marino told Sportitalia.
“In England, the Premier League is about to release a comparable statement, because the situation there is turning into very, very serious. I frankly just hope we can enjoy soccer again after the coronavirus.
“It doesn’t matter how long it takes, we need to get out of this danger zone. I am concerned for the subsequent seasons, not the old one.”
