The World Health Organisation, WHO, have reportedly called for all football to be suspended until the end of next season – 2021.
They are prepared to go extreme lengths to ensure that there is not a second wave of coronavirus.
World Health Organization, WHO, Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus gestures during a daily press briefing on COVID-19 virus at the WHO headquaters on March 2, 2020 in Geneva.
According to Italian paper La Repubblica, the WHO put forward the idea during a conference call with UEFA.
It is understood that the organisation would prefer all matches to be axed until at least the end of next season, in 18 months’ time.
WHO are said to be considering all possible scenarios, but are concerned about causing a second wave of the pandemic.
The lengthy suspension could plunge a huge number of clubs into financial instability due to the lack of matchday income.
Teams across the world have already called on their players to take a pay cut to help ease their cash woes.
Arsenal confirmed on Monday that their squad will hand over 12.5 percent of their wages to the club.
