‘How bad’s your luck’ – Vincent Kompany makes Liverpool Premier League title admission
Former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany admits sympathy for Liverpool‘s Premier League title plight.
The Reds were a record 25 points clear of City at the summit and on course for a first title in 30 years when the top flight was suspended on March 13 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Premier League clubs remain determined to complete the season and are pressing ahead with their ‘Project Restart’ plan aimed at resuming the campaign next month.
During the suspension, the Reds have had to listen to a number of rival clubs and opposing players call for the season to be declared null and void, an option that is no longer being considered by the authorities.
And asked about Liverpool‘s title limbo, Kompany said: “I can imagine and I can empathise – how bad’s your luck, right.
“But we need to hope the rightful winners get everything they deserved.”
Liverpool finished second to City last season despite earning a club-record 97 points, with Kompany’s late winner in the penultimate game of the season for Pep Guardiola’s side against Leicester City widely regarded as the moment that denied the Reds the title.
