'EPL should move to another country'

English Premier League

With Premier League clubs all happy to finish the 2019/2020 season, former Manchester United star Gary Neville feels the rest of the season should be played in another country.

The league confirmed on Friday that all 20 clubs reconfirmed their desire to complete the season, despite Ligue 1 and the Eredivisie cancelling their campaigns.

There is no return date as of yet but Neville has suggested the Premier League take the games to another country to be safe.

“If the Premier League were really serious about delivering the matches that remain in the most safe environment, they would move it to one of the two or three spots that are within three or four hours of this country that are coronavirus-free, or virtually coronavirus-free.

“They would take the Premier League over to that country — the players, the broadcasters, the media — and quarantine for a week before delivering it in an environment that has proven it can handle coronavirus.

“There are spots in Europe that have not got coronavirus at this time which could handle the League finishing. If they were serious about delivering it with a safe outcome, they could do that.”
