Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has urged for the 2019-20 Premier League season to be cancelled for the safety of players, MySportDab reports.
That would be very bad news for Liverpool who are currently 25 points clear at the top when the league was suspended.
However, De Bruyne believes if players are forced to play with a difficult fixtures schedule into a short amount of time injuries are imminent.
The Belgium playmaker has impressed once again this season with City still likely to win both the FA Cup and Champions League.
But De Bruyne insists the best thing to do is for the current season to be voided and help avoid problems in the future.
MySportDab understands this would be a great blow to Liverpool who were just two League match wins away from winning their first Premier League title in over 30 years.
“I’m not sure if we can still play,” said De Bruyne.
“Here In England, they are waiting prepared before making a decision.
“But, it is not evident as a footballer. You’re less busy for six weeks, normally you still need preparation of three to four weeks.
“If we restart suddenly, so many players will be injured after a few matches. That cannot help.
“There are millions involved and I think waiting too long for a decision can cause problems for the next season.
“It would be sorry to stop at this stage after such a good season, but if it avoids problems for the next season, it must be done.”
De Bruyne has been fantastic for Manchester City this season, scoring nine goals and providing 20 assists in all competitions.
