Neville outlines 5 things that must happen as coronavirus threatens season


Gary Neville has outlined five things that he feels must happen to patch things up in the Premier League amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The spread of COVID-19 has seen all professional football in England suspended until April 30, but there is no guarantee things will resume after this date.

Some have suggested resuming the season at a later date, when things are back to normal, so that it can reach its conclusion.

While others have suggested cancelling this campaign and restarting things next season.

Neville is firmly in the first camp, and believes everything should be done to ensure this current campaign concludes with a champion named, four sides in the Champions League, and three teams relegated.

“Open transfer window from May and run it all the way through 20/21 to give clubs agility.

“Extend player contracts to complete 19/20.

“Financial packages for clubs in need including non-league.”
