​Bournemouth boss Howe would prefer season played to finish

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says completing all Premier League fixtures is the "only fair way to finish the season".

"I find it better to not read anything and just be told what the outcome will be," he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"Everyone is putting suggestions and ideas forward. Looking at all the different things is pointless; it's a waste of energy.

"The authorities and everyone connected with football will be making decisions to ensure it's the fairest it can be for everybody.

"The only fair way is to finish the season. Everything else would be unfair on somebody. But the season can only be finished with everyone's health in mind. That is absolutely critical. We cannot play a game of football if it jeopardises the health of someone in the general public.

"I am a firm believer in that and football has to come secondary to that."
