Nuno Espirito Santo has warned Premier League bosses that football will never be the same again if the sport shuts down for a second time.
The Wolves boss believes another break in the season, similar to that caused by the coronavirus last March, would hasten the arrival of a European Super League and push smaller clubs out of existence.
Nuno insists the game has a ‘moral obligation’ to continue despite the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the UK. Fellow managers Steve Bruce and Sam Allardyce have already questioned the wisdom of playing on under these circumstances.

‘I am afraid that if the decision is to stop, football as we know now would not be the same,’ said Nuno. ‘This is my biggest fear.
‘The schedule would go crazy, it would be impossible to even finish the league season and think about the European Championships so my feeling is that if we stop everything would change and a new [version of] football would come.
‘There would probably be a Super League, there would probably be other competitions, and then it would be a matter of which clubs will survive. It’s a tough decision to make.

‘Everybody has been trying hard and all of us has the moral obligation to do our best to keep on going.
‘That doesn’t mean we are insensitive to what is happening around us but this spirit is required in these moments.
‘If we go and complain about all the situations, the answer is clearly shall we stop, but giving up now would have big impact on the future for sure.
