Chris Kamara shares opinion on enforced break and 'mega shame' for Leeds & WBA
Chris Kamara has claimed it would be a massive shame for Leeds United and West Brom if the Championship season was cancelled.
The Sky Sports pundit admitted that the EFL haven’t got to that point yet, but that the Championship top two deserve the chance to complete their seasons as promotion favourites.
Leeds overtook West Brom with their 2-0 over Huddersfield last time out, and both have a two or three-game gap in terms of points to Fulham in third.
Kamara admitted it would be heartbreaking but that he doesn’t believe that will happen any time soon for the Whites.
“That would be a mega shame,” he told Football FanCast.
“From September, people were saying West Brom and Leeds will go up automatically, and that didn’t change, even when they had sticky periods.
“It would be heartbreaking for them if the season was declared null and void. But we haven’t reached that point yet so who knows.”
Everything that the EFL have released so far has indicated that we can expect the season to be concluded, but what more do we know?
Those final nine games are going to be behind-closed-doors, with the Yorkshire Evening Post revealing that could last as long as October meaning we could miss our return to the Premier League if it happens.
That’s not bad as we could still get back to where we belong, although the celebrations may be muted as well. A BBC report shared that the government are nervous about potential celebrations from the likes of Liverpool and Leeds so they may be muted too.
It isn’t the best of outcomes, but we would sacrifice those things to make sure that promotion is secured and it seems that Kamara would too with his latest comments.
