Gary Neville Talks Up Idea Of Finishing Premier League Season Abroad

Gary Neville Talks Up Idea Of Finishing Premier League Season Abroad

Earlier this week, the Premier League reiterated their desire to finish the remaining games of the 19/20 season when it is safe to do so. While many have called for the season to be voided, that seems like the least likely outcome at the minute.

Various scenarios have been considered in order to ensure that the games are played. It seems almost certain that they will be behind closed doors, and they will also most likely take place at neutral venues.

One option that hasn't been discussed all that much is playing the games outside of the UK, but Gary Neville feels that could be the best way forward.

Speaking on Sky Sports, he said that if the Premier League were serious about playing the games they would do so in a country that has the virus under control.

If the Premier League are really serious about delivering the matches that remain in a safe environment they would move it to 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 players, broadcasters and media over, quarantine for a week or two and then deliver it in an environment that has proven it can handle this virus. There are a couple of hotspots in Europe that haven't got coronavirus which could handle the Premier League finishing.

If they were serious about it and wanted to deliver it with a safe outcome, they could do that. In this country I'm not sure they can deliver it with the amount of coronavirus which is around, especially with the amount of movement of it out there and the logistic issues.

I'm not sure they can deliver what they want to do.
