Sadio Mané has admitted he would 'accept' the decision to deprive Liverpool of their first Premier League trophy, if the season's remaining games cannot be played.
Before football was halted due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Reds had a near unassailable 25 point lead at the top of the table and needed just two more wins to confirm the title.
Mané's excellent form was a significant factor behind his side's record-breaking campaign. The Senegal international scored 18 goals and racked up 12 assists in all competitions prior to the enforced break.
"It has been difficult for Liverpool, but it has been more difficult for many millions of people around the world.
Although Mané is prepared to accept the worst, it seems likely that Liverpool will be awarded the title - however the season is concluded.
"I can’t see a way Liverpool could be left without a title," Ceferin said. "Theoretically it’s not all over, but practically Liverpool are on the verge of it. If it could not be played, it would still be necessary to announce the results in some way and then the champions should be determined."
