The 2019-20 Ligue 1 season has to be ended abruptly due to the Coronavirus pandemic. All sporting events in France will not resume at least until September. So the Ligue 1 has been ended and Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) confirmed that the final standings will be decided on a points-per-game basis.
PSG have been crowned as the 2019-20 Ligue 1 champions. Thomas Tuchel’s side were 12 points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand when the season was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has dedicated this title to the health workers who are working on the frontline.
He said: “We would like to dedicate this 2019-2020 Ligue 1 title to healthcare staff and to all the everyday heroes on the frontline whose commitment and self-sacrifice over many weeks have earned our deepest admiration.”
“We understand, respect and support the decisions taken by the French government to end the championship. Health, as the government has always said, must be everyone’s priority.”
“I would like to thank the players, the coach, the technical and medical staff as well as all the club’s employees for their tremendous work. This trophy is a reward for their hard work every day.”
“In these difficult times, I hope that this trophy will bring a little happiness and hope to all our supporters, and I am grateful to them for their unwavering support which helps drive Paris Saint-Germain forward.”
“I would also like to also thank all our partners for their loyalty throughout, and I look forward to being able to celebrate this title with all the PSG family when the conditions allow.”
