Ligue 1 season cancelled: French government announce no football until September

"Was meeting today talking about when football would resume the government making the announcement as we welcome in Franklin Franklin saying that there will be no football bit behind closed doors or anything until September. This is a big surprise is an ant. It is done. It is and We are shocked about that decision because supposedly the government took the decision on its own. Meaning that Didn't talk to the bottom of the League. Want to the twenty chairman of The League one and took this season where they could have been Do you know what time where you can think about. How the the the virus and all the pandemic goes on and maybe a little bit later in June or end of June the championship in Phoenix. This season the to the decision. It's surprising because now we don't know what's going to happen was going to be champion. Who's going to be qualified for? The Champions League was going to be relegated. Who's going to be promoted those questions? We don't have answers. We have to wait for for the now. The board of the League one to decide whether they're going to stop at the day twenty eight of the day twenty seven because he didn't play against Strasbourg last day or maybe just the the first eighteen games of the season and he didn't come the return games so we don't have all in tears and again. We're very surprised because because it's going to be very hard for some clubs I think about Amir was nineteen now with only three or four points behind Neem and the and could have hoped for a continuation of the championship and be saved. Because you have thirty points in Games in game. So it's it's a hard decision that the government took socially as well because we know the people in France love football and want to see football. But they're not going to see football and soccer before September Frank. A lot of people asked me to ask you what's going to happen with the champion sleep. Espn Leon of course. Still involved the plan from UEFA from what we've discussed and what we understand is that it could be played over that twenty day period in August. If you can have football in France. What's going to happen? It's going to be complicated for for man. A friend of mine took to necessarily Halley party chairman. Who say that. He's going to follow what the government says but he's GonNa fall all sold. What the Earth you f says and meaning that the if the Champions League is held in July August and they have to finish it they're going to finish it. They're going to go abroad to play. Some maybe friendly games to prepare all the game they have to play in the Champions League starting from the quarterfinal because they got qualified against Gort shut moon and they WANNA finish it. It's a big opportunity for percents. I'm going to be a champion of the Champions League this season but if they don't play the regular season of the League one I don't know how it can be fit and competitive in the league

K. premier league footballers have come under fire from members of parliament saying that they should be taking a big pay cut as well the professional footballers association said that plays will have to share the financial burden well I spoke to former premier league goalkeeper mark schwarzer and asked him for his view on it well what I thought you know what we're we're we're in a time where you know we we've never experienced this sort of level of of disruption in general life to businesses to people's well being you know and and to the sporting world of course so this is untried washes untested waters what what should people do you know it play is given an opportunity have that decision to make themselves I think what people do do very quickly is a shoe in that because plies the there are some who earning of see huge amounts of money and that they're awash with money and I will sue to sustain a pay cut and that will be true that will be true to a large degree because I'll be also some who who won't necessarily be able to sustain an oral B. odd to to to drop down necessarily in in in in their wage because all they'll have they'll have the you know the bogus story pilot flies to it's a replay of the various things people do live within their means sometimes he will general public lives the only main Seattle's will being no different true yeah absolutely look I'm not asking you to defend footballs it across the country because there's loads of them that would be really unfair of me but you can understand why people would be a nerve slightly the at clubs like Tottenham where the average wages seventy thousand pounds a week but they aren't making that gesture in Reno and then pay for goodness sake accused footballers in the premier league of being in a moral vacuum that's pretty strong words I'd say Barcelona Atletico Madrid plays taking seventy percent Bako of course plays about goings in seventy percent of any way E.

Chelsea knock Liverpool out of FA Cup

"Discussion. We've been having with discussions vivid stretch. Everyone just shouting at me over the last couple of days. Liverpool out the FA Cup big deal or not Look I think if you look at some of the teams. He played earlier in the competition. You could see that. This was not a priority for them. The fact of the route. Now I don't think moves the needle much. Think by the end of the season they'll be judged on whether or not they win the Premier League and we cautiously assume they will and and what they can do in the Champions League. Don't you think though alley that they should have? I don't think they should have a stronger song. Eleven out for this game given that they have already won the primarily. I do think there's an opportunity here for for Liverpool to if you're going to rest people you wrestle against born with and I understand the point that you were trying to make their so. I'm thinking if you have an opportunity to advance in a competition which you can win something. Then how about you put your best team in that competition you win the game you advance and then whatever it is that you need to do against permits you do now. What's do what's trying to get to that? Well you build momentum from the game against born well you could have done that with the first team by beating Chelsea and then you don't have to build anything going against me. I think there was a chance here for Liverpool to continue to advance in the competition. You Change your mind. I just can't give you a plausible answers to why he's chosen over overly game I. I'm not entirely sure it is. I think this is crystal clear is not particularly when an FA Cup and going all the way to the final. Thank not it's pretty clear gone. Gap could also be that when he has played best available. Eleven in the last couple of games before this game. They weren't very good and they lost a Wofford weren't good against West Ham and loss to Madrid. And so maybe he simply said what. Why don't you just take a mental break? And as far as resting people they did come off a two week stretch of Rasta winter. Break so I. I think he's probably looking at things. A little differently Chelsea then through to the quarter-finals the FA
