SEARS ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS OPTION

19 March 2020

"I don’t see that as the answer but the season must be finished" says Freddie

Freddie Sears says no player will want to play behind closed doors but finishing the season should be the aim.

The EFL and Premier League have now extended the earliest return to the game to April 30 following a meeting between the authorities this morning.

UEFA have indicated that they want all domestic seasons and their own cup competitions finished by June 30, with that date in line with the normal conclusion of player contracts relevant to the year.

“When you start a season, you want to see it out and the priority must be to look at ways of completing the season,” the Town striker told the Club website.  

“We have to respect the people in charge and I’m sure they are looking at all the alternatives.

“Playing behind closed doors has been mentioned. I don’t see that as the answer really.

“No player wants to play behind closed doors. Football is for the supporters. Look at Liverpool, they won’t want to win the title with no fans there.

“Also, you could have it like it was at the PSG game in the Champions League [against Borussia Dortmund], with thousands of fans outside the stadium while the game is going on. Are fans going to stay away when there is a match on?

“The only positive from playing behind closed doors, if it gets to that, is if it meant the season being completed.”
