Speaking during a Combat Corona Twitch FIFA competition, via the Daily Mail, Manchester United defender and ex-Liverpool target Luke Shaw has called for the season to be scrapped amid recent events – joining the long list of men to do so.
Shaw, according to the Daily Mirror back in 2016, was attracting interest from Liverpool after then United boss Jose Mourinho’s reported row with the player – but, of course, those reports didn’t come to fruition.
Instead, current left-back Andrew Robertson has stolen the hearts of Reds supporters everywhere with his powerful and solid displays down the flank after arriving for a meagre initial £8 million.
However, as the world anxiously awaits what will happen to the Premier League season, former target and arch-rival Shaw has joined the growing list of present and retired footballers who would prefer the campaign to be voided and the title-race scrapped.
Should the season be voided?
Along with the 24-year-old, retired United icon Rio Ferdinand has also called for Liverpool’s title charge to be binned alongside Tottenham striker Harry Kane – with the latter hinting that the Reds’ long wait for a domestic crown should continue if the season isn’t back up and running by June 30.
It would appear as though we face growing numbers of pundits and players alike joining them in their verdict, but given the FA could miss out on millions if the season were to be unceremoniously cancelled, it’s still pretty unlikely they will resort to that measure.
According to another report from the Mail, the governing body could face losses of up to £3 million per game if the season is voided.
