“Give it up and start again”: Manchester United defender Luke Shaw risks the wrath of his fans by calling for the cancellation of the Premier League season if the matches cannot be played soon … which would mean that his team would miss the Champions League place
- Luke Shaw said Premier League season should be abandoned
- Manchester United would miss the Champions League if the season is canceled
- There has been a lot of debate about what should happen with the remaining devices
- Shaw stressed that having fans in attendance is extremely important
Manchester United defender Luke Shaw risked the wrath of his own fans by saying that the Premier League season should be declared void if it cannot end soon.
With football in England currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, there is uncertainty about what will happen with the remaining devices.
United are currently in fifth place and Shaw is adamant that the season should be abandoned if the games cannot be completed in May, even if that means his team will not be able to qualify for the Champions League.
Luke Shaw says Premier League season should be abandoned if matches are not played soon
Speaking at a FIFA Combat Corona Twitch competition, Shaw said, “Give it up and try again. Repeat yeah. It must be you know. If we cannot continue, it must be zero. ”
If the season were declared null, it is likely that the classification of last season would be taken into account when choosing European qualifications. United finished sixth in 2018-19 and would therefore face another season in the Europa League.
If the season were abandoned, it would infuriate Liverpool, who are 25 points ahead of the top as they seek their first championship title in 30 years.
It has been suggested that when it is safe, matches could be played behind closed doors, possibly at neutral venues in the Midlands in June.
Manchester United defender stressed importance of having supporters during matches
Shaw, however, stressed the importance of having supporters present and said it “feels bad” to play without them.
The 24-year-old had the experience of playing behind closed doors when United faced LASK Linz in the Europa League last month.
He said, “The fans are so important. You realize it even more [now]. I think sport is really for the fans, you know what I mean? I think if you don’t have fans and you don’t play in front of fans, that doesn’t seem fair to you.
“Especially on the day of the match, the fans are always amazing and always help the team. Whether at home or even outside, our fans are always brilliant and I have the impression that they are always there with us. “
