Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva cannot imagine how sad Liverpool players would feel if they lifted the trophy without being able to celebrate with the fans.
Liverpool have topped the Premier League standings this season with a 25 point advantage over their closest rival, Manchester City. That way, the Marseyside team should have just won two more wins to lock in the title this season.
Ironically, when the championship trophy is in sight, the Coronavirus Pandemic makes the Premier League competition forced to be suspended temporarily. The latest decision from the relevant authorities states that the exact date of the competition being rolled out again has not been confirmed.
The reason is, the situation is getting more and more alarming, but on one hand the competition must continue. No wonder the idea arose that the Premier League would continue without the presence of an audience. Well, if this is true, Liverpool might be able to lock the title as soon as possible.
However, referring to the social distancing rules, it is likely that Jurgen Klopp’s troops could not celebrate the championship with their fans. This is what makes Bernardo Silva, Manchester City midfielder claimed to participate sad.
“I think this is a very sad situation. And maybe now even if they win it, they can’t really enjoy it because they can celebrate with their fans,”
“They will not be able to play witnessed by the audience, it will be difficult to play in, I think two or three months, with the audience. But yes, they deserve to be champions, “said Bernardo Silva in a question and answer session with Bleacher Report.
For information, the English Premier League is the closest competition to the finish line of this season’s campaign. All they have to do is play 9 games, but of course without spectators it is now the best solution in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Therefore, information has been circulating lately that the relevant authorities will hold the remaining 9 matches in just five weeks. That is, every week there will be two matches held.
The plan is indeed possible, especially the European Champions League and Europa League competitions are also being temporarily suspended. However, there is no certainty whether this plan will be implemented or not.
