Chelsea and Germany defender, Antonio Rudiger has called for the Premier League season to be cancelled over the coronavirus pandemic.
Rudiger doesn’t want the season to return because if they continue to play and there is a danger, “it might not sit right on his conscience.”
According to the star, Liverpool should be crowned as the champions of England since they boast a stunning 25-point lead over Manchester City with just two games away from mathematically securing them their first league title since 1990.
‘Honestly, as far as I’m concerned they can give Liverpool the title,’ Rudiger told ZDF.
‘At the end of the day they deserve it, they’ve had a great season and are leading the table with, oh I don’t know how many points.
‘The thing is they were going to win the thing anyway, so I think the title is theirs ethically. Of course, I hope that the season can be finished and it will be sporting for everyone.
‘But, as I’ve said before if we continue to play and there is a danger, and we ignore that while people are dying somewhere in the world, I don’t know if that would sit right on my conscience.’
However, the Premier League are reportedly waiting for guidance from the UK government following their plan to return to action with games to be played behind close doors.
