Liverpool players don’t care about title, says Willian

Willian says playing matches in empty stadiums would be “no fun” and that Liverpool players are more concerned about the coronavirus crisis than the Premier League title.

The Premier League met on Friday and are reportedly hoping to restart the season on 8 June.

With public gatherings not allowed because of the coronavirus pandemic, matches look likely to be played behind closed doors.

The Sunday Mirror quote Chelsea star Willian as saying: “Football without fans is no fun. I’ve heard that at we could return with closed gates, with no public in the ­stadiums. If it is necessary and if we must play for the good of all, it must be done.”

One of the reasons the Premier League are keen to complete the season is that Liverpool are on the verge of clinching the title and relegation issues are still to be decided.

However, Willian is convinced that Liverpool players themselves are understandably more concerned about the health of their loved ones than the title at this moment in time.

He said: “Even Liverpool players themselves, if you ask them, will say that they are concerned about their own health and that of their families. Not with the English title.”
