Yet Joe Cole’s idea of what to do with the Premier League season has caused some outrage amongst Liverpool supporters, with the former midfielder suggesting to The Daily Star that the 2019/20 campaign should be completely restarted despite the Reds being within touching distance of the title.

Handed the Premier League title
And this take was slammed to no end on social media by a wave of Liverpool supporters, who believed that their former player was just bitter about the Reds coming close to winning the Premier League title, as well as a season restart heavily benefitting Cole’s boyhood club West Ham who are just above the relegation zone.

It is expected that the Premier League season will resume at some point with EURO 2020 being postponed to 2021.
