Former Everton and Manchester United star admits Liverpool "deserve this title"
Former Manchester United star Wayne Rooney believes Liverpool deserve the Premier League title and that the right decision has been made with regards to completing the current domestic league season at some date in the future.
Writing in his column in The Times, Rooney had high praise for the achievements of Jürgen Klopp’s Reds and the standard they have set this season.
“Liverpool will win the Premier League. Now, as you can imagine, I have Everton fans phoning me up saying: ‘The season has to be cancelled!’.
“And, of course, as an Evertonian and someone who played for Manchester United for 13 years, there’s a bit in me that thinks that would be good…
“But no. Liverpool have been fantastic. They have put so much work in. They deserve this title.
“Can you imagine waiting 30 years and then having it taken away like this? The right decision has been made.”
Liverpool and every other club in the Premier League, like all of us, face uncertain times ahead. No one knows what the future holds in the aftermath of this global Coronavirus pandemic or, indeed, when we can start speaking about the ‘aftermath’. That’s because there is no clear timeline on when this virus is dealt with or contained.
When the Premier League does eventually restart, completing the 2019/20 campaign is the priority. For Liverpool, six more points are needed to confirm the club’s 19th league title success. For now, though, take care of yourselves and each other.
