West Ham chief Karren Brady has made a dramatic U-turn on whether the Premier League season should be continued.

Shortly after football action was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, Brady used her column in The Sun to say it should be declared null and void.

Some suggested West Ham's proximity to the relegation battle had influenced her view, while Liverpool fans, whose team are runaway leaders, were clearly unimpressed.

But in her latest column for the paper, the West Ham vice-chairman appears to have had second thoughts.

"To millions upon millions of us, football’s disappearance from life is very relevant indeed. So, we all want it back in a hurry," she said.

“When we — all Premier League clubs — last spoke, we agreed to get going again as soon as possible. And that games will run into July, if required, to get this campaign finished.

“This is the plan. This is what we want to deliver.

“The next Premier League meeting is on Friday and the main topic of conversation will be when games can restart," she added.
