Sir Kenny Dalglish: The Premier League campaign has to be completed.

Updated: Mar 26, 2020

It’s believed that resuming the season in early April will be near impossible.

Liverpool legend Sir Kenny Dalglish says he would like the Premier League season to be completed.

The 2019-20 Premier League season has been suspended until at least April 3rd due to the coronavirus pandemic, and there are rumours suggesting the season could be declared as null and void.

The Premier League, FA, EFL and WSL released a joint statement on Friday confirming all forthcoming matches in their competitions will be postponed after a number of cases at football clubs.

However, former Reds boss believes only those with an "agenda" will be happy to have the season cancelled.

The Scot said in the Sunday Post: "What must definitely not happen is for the 2019-20 campaign to be declared null and void.

“That would not be fair, and any person with football at heart would admit that would be totally out of order.

“In Scotland, would it be fair to say to the Premiership leaders, Celtic, that all of their efforts in the past nine months over 30 games count for nothing?

“The same would apply to Dundee United in the Championship.

“Would any person without an agenda really think it would be the most-sensible outcome to deny Liverpool their chance of winning the title after doing fantastically well in their 29 league games so far to build up a 25-point lead over Manchester City with nine games remaining?

“Of course not. Nobody can allow the hard work to count for nothing.

“So let’s do away with any of this talk, and try to use our time and energy wisely.

“I’ve been in football for more than 50 years and I know what goes into it. The season must be completed.”
