Origi Says Losing Premier League Title due to Pandemic Would Be Painful


The 2019-20 season for Premier League has been halted since early March due to the spread of COVID-19, with no restart date yet to be set.

The Reds are keeping a 25-point advantage on second-placed Manchester City with a game in hand, leaving them with two first top-flight crown wins in three decades. Liverpool forward Divock Origi has admitted that it would then be “painful” to lose the Premier League title due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Of late, some people have called for the 2019-20 to be ruled null and void. In this case, Liverpool will lose the top spot.

Origi says it will be hard to bear: “It would be painful if we can’t get that title now. But there are things in life that you cannot control. Safety is the most important thing now.”

“We are not yet at the club,” he is quoted as saying by The Mirror. “It’s all pretty unclear here in England. We don’t even train in small groups.”

Origi was encouraged to leave Anfield at the end of the season after being reduced to a mere six rounds in the Premier League and Champions League this season.
