The Premier League is aiming to resume next month and try as much as possible to wrap up the 2019-20 season by July.

Not everyone is in support of the league resuming and some players have as well signified their discontent with the league resuming amid the coronavirus pandemic.

For Norwich City boss Daniel Farke, he has maintained that the league shouldn’t resume if it will put any life at risk.

The Norwich City manager told Sky Sports: “My general attitude is that we should we should try everything to finish the season. But if we can save just one life by not finishing the season, we need to do this.

“Because all the money, all the good mood, all the fairness aspects are not the point when it is about the lives of human beings. If we finish the season and we just would risk one life of one human being, then we shouldn’t do this.

“Let’s try everything to do this for many reasons. We should do this but without risking any health or any lives of human beings.They are not easy decisions. There are advantages and disadvantages for each and every scenario.

“When I think about Liverpool, I think we have all got the feeling that for their great work, they deserve right now to have the chance to win the title. And for us, we deserve to work on our little miracle and stay in this league.”
