Gordon Taylor insists it would be “unfair” to abandon the Premier League season.
Professional Footballers’ Association chief executive Taylor says he expects the Euros to be put back for a year but maintains scrapping the whole campaign would “devalue” football.
“It would devalue it and I think those clubs that have done well and are at the top deserve to be there.
“And those clubs who are at the bottom deserve to be given the chance to get out of trouble, because that’s how the game’s always worked and that’s how the competition was at the beginning.
“So I think we should do all we can. I think it would seem really weird if we started a new season. It would be unfinished business behind us and I don’t think that would look good.
“I think it’s inevitable that club football will have to take precedence over international tournaments and international games.
“I would expect the Euros to be put back, probably for a year. I would hope the season could be extended and we’re flexible enough to deal with that.”
One of the teams who would be affected by the season ending early is Aston Villa, who are embroiled in a fierce battle to beat the drop down to the Championship.
And Villa’s sporting director, Jesus Garcia Pitarch, feels relegations should be scrapped altogether.
“If the peak of the Coronavirus is to occur in May, no one thinks of a competition in which players, coaches, and health personnel of the club will continue to appear every day,” Pitarch said.
“There are clubs that do not see admissible that the competition resumes on June 30th.
“The most reasonable thing that everyone thinks is that, if the league has to be stopped, that there are no relegations. There is a certain unanimity that there should be no descent.”
