Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier, has urged Premier League bosses to hand Jurgen Klopp’s side the title.
The premier league is on course to resume June 12 with games set to be played at neutral venue’s, But Houllier has Adviced the FA follows the same approach that was used in the French league few days ago.
Houllier, who was manager of Liverpool from 1998 until 2004, was asked by Reporters whether Liverpool should be given the Premier League crown in the same way.
“Yeah,” said Houllier. “That’s what they did in France.
“They gave it to Paris Saint-Germain. They had a 12-point lead and I think Liverpool needed just two games to win the title.
“If there was a difference of maybe two or three points then you could argue it takes some chances away from teams
behind but 25 points there is no way they wouldn’t be champions. They deserve it.”
Despite his calls for Liverpool to be crowned champions, Houllier felt the decision to end Ligue 1 in France may have been taken a little too early.
Liverpool where 25 points clear at the top of the table and needed just two more wins before the Coronavirus crisis.
