European football bosses admit season could be scrapped

European football bosses has admitted the season could be scrapped.

In a joint letter to all leagues and clubs, chiefs have confirmed that while the collective goal is to finish the current campaign despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. there is still a chance this may not be possible.

The letter - which has been co-written by Uefa President Aleksander Ceferin, Juventus President Andrea Agnelli - who is also head of the European Clubs Association - and the European League's Lars Christer Olsson.

It's been confirmed the goal is to complete domestic leagues before European club competitions can resume.

As reported by The Sun newspaper, the letter said: "A joint management of calendars is strictly required as the conclusion of the current season must be coordinated with the start of the new one, which may be partly impacted because of the overstretch.

"Closely following the development of the current situation, we will indicate as soon as possible, and ideally by mid-May, which of the plans can be enacted for the completion of the season without leaving anyone behind.

"Stopping competitions should really be the last resort after acknowledging that no calendar alternative would allow to conclude the season."

This is the first official acknowledgement that it may not be possible to complete the season, which would be bitterly disappointing for Liverpool who looked certain to be crowded Premier League champions.
