UEFA confirm Liverpool won't be crowned champions if Premier League season is cancelled

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has denied claims that Liverpool will be crowned champions if the league is cancelled due to coronavirus.

Jurgen Klopp's side are just two wins away from securing their first Premier League title in 30 years.

But the outbreak of coronavirus has caused the English top-flight to be suspended until April 4 at the earliest.

It is not known whether season will be able to go ahead by then or if the games can be played at a later date in the year.


Reports had suggested the league would be gifted to Liverpool after just 29 games as they are 25 points clear at the top.

But Ceferin slammed the rumours as "fake news" as he outlined Uefa's plans to finish the season.

Speaking, he said: "I've saw and heard some again fake news that Uefa will advise leagues to finish the championships now and decide that the winners are the ones who are number one now.

"I can say that it's not true.

"Our goal is to finish the leagues and we didn't recommend anything like that to any association or league."
