When asked if he would accept it if the Premier League was not played out, he replied:
“Yes, I’d understand it in the circumstances. Of course, it’s up to the experts to decide and the main concern must be the health of the general public. And the decision that will be made, we will back.”
Scott McTominay, who sat alongside his manager at the press conference, was asked the awkward question of how it would feel if champions-elect, and our arch-rivals, Liverpool were to somehow be denied the title.
“Obviously that’s a difficult question to answer,” he said.
“For me, you can’t really say too much about that. Obviously for us, the manager, the coaching staff and the players, we’re just concentrating on ourselves. We have to be 100 per cent committed to what we’re doing and the journey we’re going on as well and forgetting about other teams. The only other team we’re concentrating on is the next game and obviously that’s tomorrow night, Sunday, Thursday, Sunday, and obviously, for us, it’s a big build-up in matches so we have to be ready and hopefully this coronavirus won’t affect us too much.”
