Brighton Owner Wants Relegation Scrapped If Premier League Season Can’t Be Completed


Tony Broom, Brighton owner believes that there should be no relegation if the Premier League current season does not get completed due to ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Premier League’s this year season has been postponed last month due to the deadly coronavirus which has taken over 1.5 million lives across the world and there is no certainty to when the season will be resume again.

Currently, Brighton is two-point away from the field of relegation as the owner says one point per game can be used to decide who picks up the trophy, but it cannot be used for deciding relegation.

He also believes that Liverpool deserves to win a title for the performance they had shown so far in this season. Liverpool was 25 points clear of the second position Manchester City when the season was stopped.

“I don’t foresee a situation if the season’s not played out, that teams will get relegated on a points-per-game basis. I just don’t think it’s fathomable that a team which is not allowed to play out the season, may lose out on 0.2 of a point based on this system,” quoted Bloom as saying.

“Also it does not take into account the strength of the teams you have not played. You may get a title winner, obviously, Liverpool deserve it, you may use that criteria for European qualification but I do not see how anyone can vote for that, certainly the percent needed, for teams to get relegated,” he added.
