- Steve Parish claims there are no easy answers to the current situation.
- The Premier League have huge challenges on their way to restarting the campaign, the club's chief adds.
- The Bundesliga plans to get back to action next weekend.
- Parish says if they succeed, it could provide a blueprint for England's top flight.
- Otherwise, we might forget about football for a long time, he concludes.
Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has shared thoughts on the Premier League's plans to complete the 2019/20 season.
"There are no easy answers, we have to work through it as a collective and I think we will and come out with a consensus in the end," the 54-year-old said on The Andrew Marr Show.
"It may prove beyond us, we have huge challenges in order to get it back to complete the season but we are planning on doing so.
"Hopefully we have the German situation going on, if that is successful that could provide a blueprint for us. We are hoping it is successful. Clearly we can see some of the early challenges, they may prove insurmountable.
"The concern for us is if they prove insurmountable now, we may be in for a very, very extended period of not being able to play and that has huge ramifications for the game."
The restart of football in Germany is scheduled for next week, with all due security measures and precautions taken. However, the resumption date may be postponed as Dynamo Dresden's whole squad and coaching staff have been put in two-week quarantine.
The Premier League's senior figures remain committed to finishing the campaign and plan to restart it on June 8, with the remaining games played behind closed doors, likely at neutral grounds.
However, the situation might turn out to be even more complicated, with a third player from Brighton testing positive for the coronavirus.
