Former Everton defender Joseph Yobo believes that football club Liverpool deserve to win 2019-20 Premier League. The way they play throughout the tournament is just phenominal. But the whole season is suspended because of COVID-19 pandemic.
Before the suspension of Premier League due to coronavirus pandemic. Liverpool was looking good this season and set to win this title as they are 25-point lead over the second placed Manchester United.
‘If I want to be sentimental as an Evertonian, I could have said I don’t want them to win it. But I love football and for the interest of global football, and the way Liverpool have played, they deserve to win the Premier League title – 25 points is not a joke,” Goal.com quoted Yobo as saying.
“From the way they played last season, winning the Champions League and losing the league to Manchester City by one point – on that note, it would be unfair if they are not crowned as champions,” he added.
Yobo represented Everton from 2002 and 2012. He become the second player for Everton to feature in all the 38 Premier League games without missing a single minute during 2006-2007 season.
He then signed up with Fenerbahce, initially on loan from Merseyside, and then he would go on to spend two years with the Turkish giants where he won two Turkish Cups and one Super Ligue title. In February, he was appointed as Nigeria national team assistant coach.
