West Ham ace Pablo Fornals backed Karren Brady’s calls for the current Premier League campaign to be rendered null and void, when speaking exclusively to Spanish media outlet Marca. Brady’s comments had angered many at the time, none more so than Liverpool fans.

The Hammers are currently sitting in 16th spot in the Premier League table. They are only two points clear of 19th placed Aston Villa, however, having played a game more than the west Midlands outfit.
Global health crisis wreaking havoc worldwide
West Ham haven’t played since March 7th, however, due to the ongoing global health crisis. And there have been some calls for the season to be cancelled.
Hammers vice-chairman Karren Brady was one of the leading people in the game to call for the season to be rendered null and void.
She wrote in her regular column for the Sun:
“Sorry Liverpool but the Premier League has to be declared null and void if players can’t play again. The thought that everyone will be in and out of isolation and fit to play on April 4 seems so unlikely. So what if the league cannot be finished? The only fair and reasonable thing to do is declare the whole season null and void.”
Brady’s remarks whipped up a storm
The Hammers supremo received plenty of criticism for those comments. Especially from Liverpool fans.
And in fairness, the season has to be completed, whenever that may be.
There could be a tough decision to make, however. If the global health crisis continues to get worse, it could be a long time before Premier League action resumes.
West Ham ace Fornals surprisingly leapt to the defence of Brady, however, when speaking exclusively to Spanish publication Marca:
“Liverpool have a cushion and would have already won the league with two more games. In our case, Karen Brady called for the season to be ended, which if it happened would mean we are safe. It is true that personally would like it to be over. If it does have to be played, it has to be with the least possible risk for fans and for us, we’re people too.”
Only time will tell what happens.
But in every team’s best interest, the season absolutely should be played out to its conclusion.
And if that ends up being the case, it will be bad news for West Ham, but good news for Liverpool.
