- The reputable journalist claims that the Premier League is planning to complete this campaign.
- The authorities are thinking about possible ways of how the competition should resume.
- There is no intention to abandon the current campaign.
David Ornstein, a very reputable journalist, has provided a reassuring update on the fate of the current Premier League season.
There are no plans to cancel the campaign and the PL is working to make sure the season finishes, even though they don't know whether all remaining fixtures will be played.
"There is a complete commitment across English football to get this season finished," he said on the Ornstein & Chapman podcast hosted by The Athletic. "There is plenty of modelling happening on how to finish the seasons. So within the hope that the season finishes, and by that I mean: Null and void is completely off the table pretty much everywhere in English football now.
"They're modelling on how you might be able to finish it, with the best case scenario being that you play all games, but perhaps some alternative scenarios that see, I'm hypothesising here, I don't know for sure, playoffs and other various ways of getting it done."
While the date when the Premier League returns is currently set on April 30, the deadline could be extended.
UEFA postponed the European Championship to 2021, thus allowing the leagues to finish the season in the summer.
At the moment, all leagues in Europe are temporarily suspended, with a notable exception of Belarus where football is still being played despite the coronavirus outbreak.
There are fears that the current campaign will be completely cancelled so that the next season starts in time. In this case, there is a risk that Liverpool could miss out on the Premier League title.
However, another reliable journalist James Pearce believes that the Reds will be crowned champions even if the campaign is abandoned.
