Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it would be “painful” to lose the Premier League title admitted Liverpool forward Divock Origi.
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.
Nevertheless, since early March due to the spread of COVID-19, the season has been stopped with no resume date finalized as yet.
Some have called for 2019-20 to be ruled null and void, Origi says it will be hard to bear Liverpool losing the top spot.
Origi said to The Mirror, “We are not yet at the club. It’s all pretty unclear here in England. We don’t even train in small groups.”
“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.”
After being reduced to a mere six rounds in the Premier League and Champions League this season, Origi was encouraged to leave Anfield at the end of the season.
