Pep Guardiola calls for Premier League cancellation amid coronavirus scare


Pep Guardiola's Manchester City side currently sit second in the Premier League table behind Liverpool who are currently two games away from winning the title

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has called for the Premier League to be suspended amid coronavirus crisis.

His decision would throw into question what exactly would be done about finishing off the league and when Liverpool would be potentially crowned champions.

Jurgen  Klopp's Liverpool side are just two games away from winning this season's Premier League as they lead Manchester City by 25 points.

Few days ago the UK Government discussed the potential of playing games behind closed doors during a Cobra meeting with sporting authorities present but the decision was taken to not make such a drastic move just yet.

But Guardiola who was speaking ahead of City's league clash with Arsenal tomorrow night, insists that a decision must be taken to curb the League season for the sake of the fans.

"It has happened already in Italy, the league is suspended and in Spain, where the games are behind closed doors," Guardiola explained in a press conference today. "I think it's going to happen here.

"We have to ask if it works to play football without spectators. If the people do not come to watch the games there is no sense, I wouldn't like to play in the Champions League, Premier League, cups, without people.

"We are here for the people. One game, two games, maybe, but not longer. We do it for the people. I would not love to play without people in the stadium."
