There have still been various suggestions as to what should happen to the season, as the coronavirus outbreak has led to the suspension of the season since early March.

The Premier League has been suspended until April 30, and even that date isn’t feasible yet, except the world recovers from Covid-19.

Chelsea assistant boss Jody Morris ‘liked’ a comment on Instagram from an unnamed Premier League official calling for the season to be voided.

A report in The Athletic on Friday revealed that a ‘high-ranking’ official from a Premier League club wants the season to be voided, even if it means annoying champions elect Liverpool.

The article was posted on Instagram and Frank Lampard’s assistant, Jody Morris liked the post.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand is also in support that the season be voided due to the health of the players, but Liverpool legend Steve Nicol is of a contrary opinion.

“Why [void the season]? The way [Ferdinand] was talking, it was all about the safety of the players,” Nicol told ESPN FC.

“Well, the players aren’t training, they’re not together, the teams aren’t together. When they do start playing again and are together, then they’ll be no risk to the players.

“There’s ten games to go. Listen, if we were only ten games in, I would have absolutely no problem with voiding the season.

“But the fact that you’ve got ten games left, top-class teams playing Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday – so three games in a week.

“It will take you between three and four weeks to play 10 games. What is the problem with that?

“You’re going to void a whole season for the sake of three to four weeks? That makes no sense to me whatsoever.”
