Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas has suggested the decision to end the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season possibly came to soon.

The league was officially suspended in March due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, with the decision to cancel the current campaign coming last week. As a result, Paris Saint Germain were handed the title, whilst Toulouse and Amiens suffered relegation to the second tier.

Whilst Fabregas has confirmed that he understands the reason behind the cancellation, the fact that the Bundesliga is once again getting underway suggests that the French game could have followed suit.

Talking to beINSports, the Spaniard said: “It is a big decision that they took, I understand why they took it. Maybe it was taken too soon, considering a lot of the big leagues are trying to make it happen.

“Although I completely understand the meaning behind it and it’s better to be safe in all accounts, because the most important thing is the families and the health of everyone which I support 100 per cent.

“But maybe we could have considered doing training by ourselves, individually where you have basically no risk. You’re not touching anyone, you’re not close to anyone and see if everything was getting closer to football behind played all over the world.”

Before the cancellation of the league, Fabregas’ current employers, Monaco sat ninth, meaning that they missed out on a place in the UEFA Europa League.

The former Arsenal, Barcelona and Chelsea man had made 22 appearances for the club in all competitions so far this season, providing three assists.
