Premier League ‘to cancel season’ claims club chief amid coronavirus crisis

The Premier League is to announce the season is over, according to the director of an Italian club owned by Watford.

Udinese's Pierpaolo Marino made the claim after the Belgium league announced an end to the season and declared Club Brugge as champions. UEFA warned such action could affect entry into European competitions next season.

The Premier League has given no date for a re-start of matches with Liverpool 25 points clear at the top.

But Marino told Sportitalia: “The Belgian Federation has already sanctioned the end of their league, despite the threats of sanctions from UEFA.

“In England, the Premier League is about to release a similar statement, because the situation there is becoming very, very serious. I frankly just hope we can enjoy football again after the coronavirus.

“It doesn’t matter how long it takes, we need to get out of this danger zone.

"I am worried for the next seasons, not the old one.”
