Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has given his backing to Project Restart, claiming that the Premier League season needed to be completed somehow.
The go-ahead has been given for the season to be completed from June 17, following what will be a three-month layoff due to the coronavirus, which has seen more than 270,000 people infected in the UK, with close to 40,000 losing their lives.
Clubs have started to step up their preparations to conclude the campaign, which has seen Liverpool establish a 25-point lead over Manchester City, leaving them searching for only two victories to lift the trophy.
With that in mind, Henderson does not feel it was possible for the season to be called null and void.
He was asked if he ever felt it was a possibility by TalkSPORT and replied:
“I think obviously for us we still think we’ve got work to do, and we have. We’ve got nine games left and we want to win as many of them as possible.
“And that was all our focus was on really in terms of just wanting to get back and waiting for the right time to go back.
“I was always under the impression that, not only for us but for the rest of the league, it needed finishing at some point.”
