Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was against the Premier League being voided and Liverpool being denied their Premier League title win, according to reports.

Jurgen Klopp’s side need just two wins to secure their first league title in 30 years.

But the coronavirus pandemic has brought the Premier League to a standstill and is remains unclear when fixtures will resume.

Earlier this week, the Premier League confirmed that the season will be extended ‘indefinitely’, which paves the way for Liverpool to complete their title victory.

All 20 Premier League club chiefs met this week to decide the fate of the current campaign.

And according to The Athletic, Woodward gave no indication that he wanted Liverpool to be denied the title as a result of the Premier League season being voided.

The report claims that Woodward’s input was ‘very fair’ and was insistent that the campaign had to be finished, even if it runs until the end of 2020.

United, meanwhile, remain in the hunt for a Champions League place and are just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

In the Europa League, United have all but confirmed their place in the quarter-final draw after they beat LASK 5-0 in the first leg of their last-16 tie earlier this month.
