Speaking to CNN, Watford captain Troy Deeney has bared all surrounding the backlash he has received for his stance on the recent global pandemic – and has even given his opinion on how Liverpool’s presumed title win will be looked back on in decades to come. 

Deeney, in an interview with CNN, has claimed that he feels ‘sorry‘ for Liverpool because recent events will apparently ‘spoil‘ the Reds’ title win and take the spotlight away from a monumental first league crown in 30 years.

He also went on to question the ‘integrity’ surrounding Liverpool’s continued chase, claiming there cannot be ‘viable’ competition from this point forward to the end of the season.

No

The Englishman has since received backlash for these comments from all over the media, but a handful of Reds have gone against the grain – potentially thinking there is a good point to be taken from Deeney’s verdict.
