'Just give Liverpool the trophy should the league end today'- Norwich captain Alexander Tettey

Ghanaian born Norwegian international, Alexander Tettey believes Liverpool are deserving winners of the English Premier League should it end abruptly.

The Premier League has been halted until at least 30 April due to the rapid spread of the Coronavirus.

But Tettey wants Liverpool to be crowned champions should the Football Association and the Premier League decide to end the season at this stage.

“It’s the same talk that Liverpool should not become champions,' he told Norwegian station TV 2.

“They lead by 25 points. Should the league be called off, just give them the trophy. It must be fair.

“If they have to play the matches for many months, and we stay until August or September, then we just have to do it, because it’s fair to end this season.

“It (cancelling) is not a scenario I’m thinking about, because it’s not really very fair.

“In football, you are placed where you are because of the way you’ve performed.

“You’re going to play your way out of the situation, not get help from a bad thing. For the fans and the club, it would be very good, but it’s not fair.

“There are many scenarios, but I think we should play as fast as possible.

“UEFA will have all matches finished in June at the latest. I think they should try to stick to that, although it can be difficult.”

Tettey, however could see his team Norwich relegated if no changes are made to the format in which clubs get relegated.
