Liverpool deserves to be crowned 2019-20 EPL champions whether the coronavirus pandemic brings this season to a premature end or not, Joseph Yobo has said.
Yobo believes being an Evertonian could have made him say otherwise, but that would be mere bias.
According to him, he loves football, so he believes leading the EPL race with 25 points is a feat that has to be rewarded with a Premier League title.
He added that it would also be unfair if they fail to lift the title because of how they lost the league to Manchester City last year.
His words, “If I want to be sentimental (as an Evertonian), I could have said I don’t want them to win it,”
“But I love football and for the interest of global football, and the way Liverpool have played, they deserve to win the Premier League title. 25 points is not a joke.
“From the way they played last season, winning the Champions League and losing the league to Manchester City by one point – on that note, it would be unfair if they are not crowned as champions.”
