Artell: "In My Opinion The Season Has To Be Completed And I Would Be Saying That If We Were 24th"

17 March 2020

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell has told the club’s official website that he wants the 2019/20 season to finish and he would be saying that if his side were 17th or 24th in League Two.

The Alex boss says that the safeguarding of life is top priority as we go forward in reducing the spread of coronavirus in the United Kingdom but when questioned about the possibility of the football season being cancelled he replied: “I will tell the truth and it is up to people to believe me or not but I would be saying this if we were 17th or 24th in the league but for me the season has to finish.

“Now I know people will say that it is easy to say when you are a top of the league but we have to try and find a solution if that means resuming later on in the year. We can sort out the following season afterwards and with a winter World Cup on the horizon; it could all fit into line.

“If UEFA want to do something with the Champions League and the Europa League with an 8 team mini-tournament or whatever then that is fine but we have EFL clubs and Premier League who are close to completing a season.

He added: “It may take some time and it looks pretty grim in the short-term for everyone, so all we can do is wait and prepare as if we have a game on April 4th until we are told otherwise. That looks highly unlikely but we can only do what we are told.”
