The English Football Association and the Professional League have said they face "difficult decisions" regarding the financial implications of the emerging Corona virus (Covid-19).

Next April 30 is a proposed date for the resumption of competitions, but this date appears optimistic in light of government restrictions to urge citizens not to leave their homes for unnecessary reasons.

After a meeting with the Professional Players Union on Friday, the league links issued a statement confirming the agreement of the various parties "that there are difficult decisions that must be taken to reduce the economic impact of the suspension of the professional championships in England, and also agreed to work together to find common solutions."

"The championships will not be resumed before April 30 at the earliest. They will be resumed when the situation is safe enough to allow this," the statement added.

He concluded by recalling that next week will see other meetings to formulate a joint plan to deal with the difficult circumstances that guide clubs, players and fans.

Liverpool lead the Premier League 25 points behind champions Manchester City and their closest rivals, nine rounds ahead.

Liverpool need only two wins to snatch their first league title since 1990.

Britain announced that the number of deaths from the new corona virus in the country reached 759, in addition to more than 14 thousand infected.
