Brighton striker Glenn Murray appeared to jump on the bandwagon on Thursday when he suggested that Leeds United shouldn’t be handed promotion if the season isn’t completed.

It comes one day after Norwich director Stuart Webber also suggested that Championship clubs shouldn’t be rewarded if their season is abandoned.

Leeds fans were not happy with that, as the Canaries joined the long-list of bottom-half Premier League clubs demanding relegation be scrapped.

Murray claimed that Championship clubs wouldn’t deserve the right to go up if they can’t finish their games – interesting.

“Obviously, if we manage to play our games in the Premier League then the bottom three deserve to go down,” he said, as quoted by the Yorkshire Evening Post.

“But if they’re to be relegated then the Championship has to finish their games. If the Championship doesn’t finish its games they don’t deserve to be promoted.”

It won’t be down to the players, and they are set to be disappointed. EFL chairman Rick Parry claimed that the Premier League would be breaking an agreement if promotion and relegation are voided.

The FA have already told clubs that three teams will be going down, so Murray’s view doesn’t mean much in the grand scheme of things.

As it stands, football is set to return. The EFL told Championship clubs on Wednesday that they will be allowed to return to training on the 25th of May, with the season set to resume in mid-June.

Murray should concentrate on Brighton and their bid to remain in the Premier League, rather than casting his views on what is happening below the top-flight right now.

Many Leeds fans seemed to agree with their reactions, claiming that it is embarrassing how many Premier League clubs and players seem to suddenly have an opinion.
