Chelsea star makes a passionate call for Liverpool to be crowned Premier League champions
Liverpool is miles clear at the top of the Premier League table but if the season doesn’t finish they may miss out on being crowned champions.
Liverpool should be crowned Premier League champions even if the season cannot be finished. That’s according to Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger who believes Jurgen Klopp’s side has every right to claim the trophy.
Liverpool is a massive 23 points clear of Manchester City and needed just six points to seal the title before coronavirus led to the suspension of football.
Rudiger would be more than happy to see Klopp’s side lift the trophy as they have clearly been the best side in the top flight.
Honestly, as far as I’m concerned they can give Liverpool the title,“ the Chelsea defender told ZDF.
“At the end of the day they deserve it, they’ve had a great season and are leading the table with, oh I don’t know how many points.
“The thing is they were going to win the thing anyway, so I think the title is their ethically.
“Of course, I hope that the season can be finished and it will be sporting for everyone.
“But, as I’ve said before if we continue to play and there is a danger, and we ignore that while people are dying somewhere in the world, I don’t know if that would sit right on my conscience.”
Rudiger has also warned the Premier League over restarting too soon and has underlined it is not a race with other countries.
“All I can say is that this is not about who starts first or who gets an agreement in place,” he added.
