Brady defends her comment on' Premier League season be null and void'



Karren Brady has hit back after she was criticised for suggesting the Premier League season should be declared null and void, saying she was merely thinking of players and fans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The West Ham vice-chairman was accused of putting her own club's interests first in her initial comments, made in a newspaper column, with the Hammers only outside the Premier League relegation zone by virtue of goal difference.

“There is no dodging the possibility that all levels in the EFL, as well as the Premier League, will have to be cancelled and this season declared null and void because if the players can't play the games can't go ahead," she said.

Brady defended herself on Twitter on Sunday, saying: "Everyone agrees that LFC deserve to win the title. The Premier League and EFL are doing all we can to ensure the season is finished. Including suspending games, isolating players, and if required playing games behind closed doors and into the summer months.

"My point was safety of fans, players, staff come first and if the remaining games just cannot be played the only fair and reasonable thing is to declare [the] season null and void."

Matches in the Premier League and EFL have been suspended until April 3 at the earliest, with most top-tier clubs facing nine remaining fixtures.
