Watford captain Troy Deeney shares his sentiments on football being suspended

​Watford captain Troy Deeney has cited that the ongoing Premier League needs to be concluded following suspension due to the increasing Coronavirus pandemic across the world.

In an interview with BBC Sport, Deeney believes calling of the whole season will be unjust especially with Liverpool being on the verge of securing the Premier League title.

"I think we've got to finish it, I don't know when or how, but we've got to finish it," he said.

"Literally just to get an outcome. A fair outcome. If you 'null and void' it, Liverpool are wounded, aren't they? Everyone wants to see them win it now, they've been great.

"I don't think setting dates is the fairest thing to do. I think we've just got to play it by safety.

"I just think it's a case of finishing it, but just finishing it being sensible really."

"As footballers, in the privileged position that we're in, we've been tested," Deeney continued.

"We'll probably get tested again before the season starts. If they play behind closed doors they're going to make sure the stadiums are really clean. There's a lot of things they can do to take precautions.

"If you're an Arsenal fan, you want to go and see Arsenal play, so if you're just hearing that they've played behind closed doors and they'll have won 3-0, it's not the same emotion, it's not the same feel."

"Everyone's just trying to take care of their family as best as they can," he said.

"It's been weird because I'm the kind of guy that will stop and take pictures with everybody or shake hands with somebody as like if I met you, I'd be like 'Hi, how are you doing?' and shake your hand.

"That's been the hardest adjustment for me if I've gone to the shop or something and people go 'Ah can I get a picture?' I'm like 'Nah, Nah, I'm not allowed to do that.'

"I'm one of the fortunate ones, I've got a gym in the house so I've been doing a bit in the house. I can get fit in two weeks, it's not an issue.

"There's no start date yet to when we're going back to football and I started Game of Thrones for the first time. I've got eight seasons to get through so until that's done the football can hold off for a minute."
