Watching Liverpool fans? Ferdinand calls to 'void season'

Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand wants the Premier League season abandoned.

The outbreak of coronavirus has seen the campaign suspended until at least April 30, but the Premier League have extended the season indefinitely to ensure its completion.

Liverpool have a 25-point lead over Manchester City and need just two more wins to secure the title, but Ferdinand says football is no longer a priority.

"I just think the Premier League should just be voided," said Ferdinand on his Instagram page. "Just void it.

“I know there are going to be a lot of Liverpool fans going 'Oh Rio, it's just because you support Manchester United and it's Liverpool'.

"It's not that, it's just that I don't see a way that it can be done, where health isn't compromised. Simple as that."
