West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has called the Premier League to cancel the remaining fixtures of the season amid the Coronavirus crisis.

On Friday, the Premier League confirmed all fixtures will be postponed until at least April 3 but Brady wants the season to be cancelled and started afresh.

Cancellation of the season could see Liverpool miss out on a first league title in 30 years, while Championship clubs may be denied promotion to the Premier League.

“Suspension or cancellation of the league was always a certainty,” she wrote in her column in The Sun.

“There is no dodging the possibility that all levels in the EFL, as well as the Premier League, will have to be cancelled and this season declared null and void because if the players can’t play the games can’t go ahead.

“The PL hopes that an interlude of three weeks from today will enable it to restart but that may well be dreamland.

“So what if the league cannot be finished? As games in both the PL and in the EFL are affected, the only fair and reasonable thing to do is declare the whole season null and void.’

“Who knows who would have gone down or come up if the games have not actually been played in full? Brady continued.

“A huge blow to Liverpool who might be robbed of their first title in 30 years.

“This will be discussed between the PL and the clubs next week at an emergency meeting.”
