Paris Saint-Germain has been named French Champion for the third time in a row following the cancellation of Ligue 1.
The French Ligue 1 was cancelled some days ago after the French Prime
Minister, Edouard Philippe revealed that no sporting events will be held in the
country until September at the earliest.
Professional football in France was suspended at the start of March due to
the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the French Professional Football League (LFP) had detailed plans as
recently as last week over a possible resumption of the league before June 17.
With the league now cancelled, the French League (LFP) on Thursday crowned PSG
the title which is their third in a row.
PSG had a 12-point lead over second-placed Olympique de Marseille when the
season was suspended as part of French government’s measures to contain the
spread of the novel coronavirus last month.
The LFP also crowned Lorient as Ligue 2 champions.
