Rumours broke that Gerwyn Price was set to decline any further Premier League Darts invites with ‘The Iceman’ heavily critical on the format but at a recent exhibition, it is one that baffled the former World Champion.
“I’m not sure who said that I haven’t said a word so whoever said that, wherever that has come from, that’s not true at all. It’s news to me. It’s a privilege to play in any tournament in the PDC, it’s the pinnacle of the sport barring the World Championship. That’s every dart players dream,” said Price to Online Darts.
“If I was to turn it down, it would be for the right reason. Unless there was something wrong with me, I’d never turn it down. If the format stays the same as it is, I’m not a fan of it but I would never turn it down.”
Return to World Number One
Some consolation from his World Matchplay run is a return to the World Number One spot but for Price, he would give it up to have sealed the Phil Taylor trophy.
“I’m happy to be World Number One, I’ve been there before. Lost it and got it back which is nice but I probably give it up to win that tournament. I was there to do a job, I was there to lift a trophy. Not to get to the Quarters, Semis or the Final. I really wanted to win that one, tick another tournament off in the box that I haven’t won before.”
