The Premier League have rubbished suggestions that the 2019/20 campaign is about to be declared cancelled due to coronavirus pandemic.
According to Udinese sporting director Pierpaolo Marino claimed that the English top-flight could follow in the Belgian top league’s footsteps and officially declare the most recent standings final.
Marino, whose Udinese side share owners with Watford, told Sportitalia: “The Belgian Federation has already sanctioned the end of their league. In England, the Premier League is about to release a similar statement, because the situation there is becoming very, very serious.”
However, an official Premier League spokesman has now firmly denied the Italian’s bold claims, branding them ‘inaccurate’.
In other hand, the Premier League clubs have unanimously decided to postpone the season indefinitely instead of resuming it at the beginning of May, as it was expected.
However, the objective remains to play all remaining domestic league and cup matches. Thus, the PL officials have held talks with the UK government on possibly resuming the season in June, with the campaign being played with strict guidelines and behind closed doors.
