Leeds United still do not know whether they’ll be playing football again this season let alone if they will be promoted to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.
The Athletic’s Phil Hay isn’t convinced after the EFL delayed a return to training until May 25th, but he also believes that a PPG ending to the campaign would see the west Yorkshire outfit promoted.
In a recent Q&A, Hay responded to one fan with the following:
The EFL’s chairman Rick Parry has put a deadline of July 31st to complete all remaining fixtures, which means if there are any more delays to the campaign being complete, then it would seem unlikely that Leeds’ remaining nine games will be finished.
Which Hay claims could become ‘very messy’ as the Premier League are a different entity to the Championship and it would be on them to decide if any teams face relegation or not.
