Bournemouth keeper Ramsdale: I hope season finishes

Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale admits it would be cruel for the season to be concluded prematurely.

The Premier League remains suspended until April 30 due to the coronavirus outbreak, and it remains to be seen whether football will return by that date.

There are talks of pushing the season into the summer months, and Ramsdale is all for it.

Ramsdale told Sky Sports News: "No one's totally adrift and we haven't worked this hard and played this many games just to be cruelly sent down.

"It would be even harsher on Aston Villa who, if they hadn't done so well in getting to the Carabao Cup final, would have played another game and might not even be in bottom three. I think that's probably the worst scenario.

"We've put a lot into this season, and we want to get it going again. And for all those other teams who have worked so hard; Liverpool, so close to the title, and Sheffield United who want to finish as high as they can. It's our job, it's our passion and at the moment we're in a bit of limbo."
