Ander Herrera, midfielder of Paris Saint-Germain, claims Ligue 1 bosses were “too extreme” in taking the season to an early end.

On 30 April, PSG was proclaimed champions after the majority of the French top-flight season was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic, with most teams only having 10 games left.

The Bundesliga, however, resumed earlier this month and preparations are in place to bring La Liga, Serie A, and the Premier League back on track in June.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, with his side finishing seventh and losing out on a spot in the Champions League, was outspoken in his opposition to voiding the season.

Herrera is also unsure why the Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) has been so swift to cancel the rest of 2019-20 and admits that those still participating are “envious.”

“France wrongly canceled the league in my opinion, as it shows they can come back. You see the workings of your team-mates and you are envious,” Herrera told Marca.

French football authorities have agreed to postpone Ligue 1 and Ligue 2’s 2019-20 season in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, which has caused more than 358,000 deaths worldwide.

For a third consecutive year, PSG has subsequently proclaimed champions, having already built a 12-point lead over Marseille’s second position with a game in hand.
