Some Liverpool fans took exception to UEFA after reports suggested that they would be demanding a large sum of money as a result of the postponement of Euro 2020.
According to David Ornstein from The Athletic, the European governing body will want £275m its clubs and leagues by a year in response to the coronavirus pandemic, even though the tournament itself and the outbreak has nothing to do with the clubs themselves.
The season has been put on hold due to the ongoing spread of the illness, with the Premier League announcing that all matches will be halted until at least 3rd April. This has forced UEFA to postpone the European Championships until 2021.
But the Telegraph revealed that the virus is expected to the peak in the next ’10 to 14 weeks’, which would mean that it would be highly unlikely for football to continue on the Premier League’s advised date.
Should Euro 2020 be cancelled?
As a result, supporters were left raging and made their feelings clear towards UEFA on social media. One said that the report was “unbelievable”, while another stated that the governing body should be “disbanded”.
Unbelievable… Do #UEFA think this is only affecting them ffs?
