'It's happening', 'Here we go' – Many Leeds fans thrilled by Sky Sports update

Sky Sports has reported that the Bundesliga has been given the green light to resume on May 15 and Leeds United fans are jumping.

The Bundesliga is setting the way forward for other big leagues in Europe to follow and that’s why Leeds fans are so happy.

It puts real pressure on the British government and the Premier League to follow suit now – if Germany can do it, why not England?

The news was posted on the Sky Sports News page on Wednesday afternoon with the May 15 date being posted in the evening.

The next Premier League meeting is on Monday, one day after the government is expected to announce easing of lockdown conditions in the UK.

Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that would happen from Monday.

With a reported contingency plan in place to promote Leeds and West Brom if the Championship can’t finish, we just need confirmation of the three top-flight teams being relegated.

And this represents a big step forward to that happening.

That’s why these Leeds fans are so happy…
