Nottingham Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis has indicated what his plan will be should they not be able to complete the Championship season.

Like leagues around Europe, England’s second-tier is currently suspended as the UK battles the outbreak of Coronavirus.

At the moment the plan is to conclude the season in the coming months when the country has a better handle on the situation.

That is looking increasingly unlikely though, with COVID-19 continuing to spread and football becoming a secondary issue.

Should the season end as it stands, that would see Nottingham Forest securing a playoff spot as they currently sit fifth in the table.

And discussing what he will do in Greece regarding his other club, Olympiakos, Marinakis hinted at his preference for the situation.

“If we agree to the league’s closure, there can be no doubt,” he told O Jogo.

“We will clearly have one team first and another second. There are no ifs and buts.

“Olympiacos will not fight for their individual interest, but for what is best for all clubs.

“(The league) should be finished clearly (with the missing matches) so that the next one also starts clearly.”

It seems then that Marinakis’ plan to lobby for the league and the remaining fixtures to be completed at some point.

If that can’t happen, then he clearly believes the current standings should be respected, which would, of course, see Nottingham Forest securing a playoff spot.

Whether that would in the best interests of every other club, however, particularly those in the relegation places, is likely to make for fierce debate.
