Liverpool legend Nicol slams Rio: Void the season with 10 games left? Why?!

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol insists the season should continue.

Nicol has hit out at Rio Ferdinand's suggestion that the Premier League should be voided.

He told ESPN: "Why [void the season]? The way [Ferdinand] was talking, it was all about the safety of the players.

"Well, the players aren't training, they're not together, the teams aren't together.

"When they do start playing again and are together, then they'll be no risk to the players.

"There's 10 games to go. Listen, if we were only 10 games in, I would have absolutely no problem with voiding the season.

"But the fact that you've got 10 games left, top-class teams player Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday - so three games in a week.

"It will take you between three and four weeks to play 10 games. What is the problem with that?

"You're going to void a whole season for the sake of three to four weeks? That makes no sense to me whatsoever."
