UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has warned the Champions League and Europa League could be abandoned if coronavirus restrictions remain into September.

Ceferin also admitted playing behind closed doors is a better option than scrapping the season.

“The fact is that we really don’t know much,” the president of European football’s governing body said.

“We are waiting for the development of this terrible situation in the world, and mainly in Europe.

“Football isn’t the same without fans. But it is definitely better to play with fans than without fans.

“The thing is, football is absolutely not the same without spectators.

“But it is still better to play the game behind closed doors and have it on TV, which is what the people need and want because it brings positive energy to their homes, than not playing at all.

“That’s what the people want, that brings positive energy, and it will be July or August. We can’t play it out in September or October.”
