Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov has shared his opinion on how he believes the 2019/20 season should end.
The campaign came to an abrupt halt last month when it was decided that the professional game in England should be suspended as a result of the coronavirus pandemic (talkSPORT).
Prior to the suspension, Spurs had found themselves in a terrible run of form which had seen them go six matches without a win in all competitions after RB Leipzig ended their hopes of another appearance in the Champions League final with a comfortable 4-0 win on aggregate (Mirror).
Jose Mourinho’s side were at serious risk of failing to qualify for European football’s most prestigious club competition for the first time in five years having dropped to eighth place in the Premier League table and are seven points behind rivals Chelsea who occupy fourth position.
Berbatov believes that table topping Liverpool would be fully deserving of being handed the Premier League crown should the season be unable to resume.
He told Betfair: “We are all missing football, it is our religion. I have seen that a couple of players have spoken out asking for a solution. They have finished the league in Belgium where there was only one game to go, so you can understand that decision, but in the Premier League there are still nine rounds of fixtures to go.
“I have seen people calling for the season to be void, to give the title to Liverpool and other opinions. Some people are saying their teams could play their remaining fixtures in a couple of weeks, but that can lead to many injuries. I don’t know which decision is the right one, whatever is decided won’t be so popular.
“People are suggesting to give the title to Liverpool, and honestly they deserve it the way they had been playing, nobody was going to catch them. With the way they play their games, the football they produced and how far they are in front, they fully deserve the title this season. It’s so strange, and it will be unfair on them if the season is voided, they will be so disappointed.
“The people who make the decisions at the Premier League are facing something they have never experienced before, and people are split on what should happen. I would like to see the season finish with football, but obviously people’s safety comes first.”
