All major sporting event have more or less been cancelled as the world attempts to beat the Coronavirus pandemic, with EFL and EPL football being called off until the 4th of April at the earliest..

Speaking to the Yorkshire Post, the gaffer thinks that postponing games rather than playing in empty stadiums is the right call.

“I would prefer a postponement and then get all the games Saturday-Tuesday, Saturday-Tuesday for the last four or five weeks and go for it like that.”

“All sport is entertainment to a certain extent, but it just seems weird playing behind closed doors. I understand why and you have to put the nation’s health in front of a football match, quite obviously. But if I had a choice, I would rather have a few weeks postponement.”

He added: “People will listen to me and say: ‘he doesn’t understand, what an idiot’. But a simple answer to a simple question, that is my preference.”
