‘Hope so’, ‘Good news’ – Plenty of Leeds United fans excited by Andy Couzens’ promotion claim

Published

on

Former Leeds United midfielder Andy Couzens has claimed that enough of the season has been played to ensure the Whites will still be promoted, which has drawn an excited response from fans of the Yorkshire club.

Due to the worldwide Covid-19 outbreak, the EFL has suspended all fixtures until at least the 3rd of April.

Beyond that, there remains great uncertainty, given it is unknown how long such measures will be necessary and there is little precedent of such a situation.

It is particularly concerning for Leeds, who sit top of the Championship after 37 games and look on course to return to the Premier League after a 16-year absence.

At this point, it is not known whether the 2019/20 season will need to be canceled and what the situation would be with crowning champions and deciding which clubs are promoted or relegated.

Couzens has taken to Twitter to claim that an FA rule indicates that Leeds would be given the Championship title and promotion.

It does not appear there is such a rule in place, in fact the Telegraph has reported there is no regulation governing what will happen if the season is curtailed.
