UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has revealed that he is optimistic that football across the continent will resume and the seasons, even in the worst affected areas, will finish.

Football across Europe and pretty much the entire world is on hold due to the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic, a pandemic which has caused great disruption to everything, including football.

“I am optimistic that we will see the end of the Spanish league, I am optimistic that we will see the end of the Italian league, and I am optimistic in general. Of course, I cannot guarantee anything, I cannot promise anything,” he told Slovenian news outlet Ekipa.

Ceferin was then asked about whether Liverpool would be awarded the Premier League title if the season does not finish given they are so far ahead of their competition.

The current Champions League holders are not the only club in such a position in Europe and it can be presumed that Ceferin’s views on similar scenarios will be the same.

“I can’t see a way Liverpool could be left without a title. Theoretically it’s not all over, but practically Liverpool are on the verge of it.

“If it could not be played, it would still be necessary to announce the results in some way and then the champions should be determined.

“And of course, again I do not see a scenario in which that would not be Liverpool. I understand that fans will be disappointed if it happens in an empty stadium or even at a table, but I believe they will win the title in one way or another.”

In conclusion he was asked if European football’s governing body have plans in place for how league champions and final standings if leagues cannot be finished.

“No, we don’t. We are preparing for such scenarios, but we are not dealing with the details for now. At this point, we are fully committed to completing the competitions.”
