Antonio Rudiger says Liverpool should be awarded the Premier League title if he is not sure enough to finish the rest of the season.

The Chelsea defender hopes that football will be able to restart but says he will not feel comfortable doing so while people around the world die from coronavirus.

Liverpool have a 25 point lead at the head of the league with nine games to play, Manchester City in the second has 10 to play.

Rudiger said in an interview with ZDF: “Honestly, as far as I’m concerned, they can give the title to Liverpool. At the end of the day, they deserve it, they had a great season and lead the table with, oh I don’t know how many points.

“The fact is they were going to win it anyway, so I think the title is theirs. Of course, I hope the season can be over and that it will be sporty for everyone. “

Rudiger, whose Chelsea club is fourth in the FA Cup quarter-final and remains in the last 16 of the Champions League, would not be in favor of a resumption of the season too early.

“If we continue to play and there is a danger, and we don’t know that while people are dying somewhere in the world, I don’t know if that would reside in my conscience,” he added.

“If all is well and it comes from the officials that all is well, there is no danger, then we can start. But if there is a danger that it will happen again and more people will be infected [we can’t start again]. ”
