Man City star Gundogan believes Liverpool should be crowned Premier League winners.

Ilkay Gundgan won't have an issue if the Merseyside club were handed the Premier League trophy.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan believes it is "okay" to hand Liverpool the Premier League title if the season isn't completed due to the COVID-19 chaos.

Following the impact of the coronavirus, the Premier League was brought to a halt. Jurgen Klopp's Reds are 25 points above second-placed Man City and need just two wins to land their first major title in 30 years, but with uncertainty over when the 2019-20 season will restart, it has led to majority suggesting Liverpool should be crowned champions. However, Gundogan, who joined the Citizens in June 2016, says he won't have a problem if that was the case.

The City holding midfielder told German broadcaster ZDF: "It would be okay for me. You have to be sporting."

Gundogan is convinced Liverpool deserve to be Premier League champions.

When asked whether continuing the campaign behind closed doors should be an option the Football Association should consider, the 29-year-old replied: "Honestly, I can't imagine that - and I don't know how realistic it is." Gundogan also admitted the COVID-19 shutdown hasn't been easy to keep up with.

"You are sometimes afraid to go for a walk for 10 to 15 minutes outside, even though it was oddly and ironically extremely beautiful weather here in Manchester," said the German.
