QPR CEO Lee Hoos believes it is only right that the currently-suspended 2019/20 English professional football season comes to a conclusion – but stressed that the safety of supporters, players and staff alike continues to be of primary importance.
The FA – along with the Premier League, EFL and women’s professional game – today (Thursday) announced that the finish date for the current campaign can be extended indefinitely, with play for now also further postponed until April 30th at the earliest.
Speaking to www.qpr.co.uk, Hoos told us: “We’re down the home stretch and the finish line is in sight.
“When football was suspended before [during the Second World War], the season had only just started. In terms of football, that would have made matters a lot easier.
“If this were October, it would be much easier to make the call in terms of terminating the season.
“However, when you’re this close – with nine games left to go – then getting through it is just something we have to do. We just have to concentrate on the safety aspect of everything.
“We have fans, players and staff who we have a responsibility to – that’s the number one priority.”
