The Premier League will follow Belgium’s top tier and cancel the rest of its season, according to Udinese sporting director Pierpaolo Marino.
With Liverpool 25 points clear atop the table, the Premier League was suspended last month due to the coronavirus pandemic. Last week, the league announced that its suspension would continue indefinitely.
Many leagues around the world have been brought to a standstill, with Belgium’s Jupiler Pro League having cancelled the rest of its campaign and awarded the title to leaders Club Brugge.
Marino, whose club are owned by Giampaolo Pozzo – the father of Watford owner Gino, believes England will do likewise.
“The Belgian Federation has already sanctioned the end of their league, despite the threats of sanctions from UEFA,” Marino told Sportitalia.
“In England, the Premier League is about to release a similar statement, because the situation there is becoming very, very serious. I frankly just hope we can enjoy football again after the coronavirus.
“It doesn’t matter how long it takes, we need to get out of this danger zone. I am worried for the next seasons, not the old one.”
