Jurgen Klopp promises Liverpool fans eventual Premier League title party


Jurgen Klopp has promised Liverpool fans a title party…eventually.

And the Reds boss has insisted his soon to be champions will take the Premier League trophy on a parade around the city, even if it means waiting until the Coronavirus crisis is finally over.

As it emerged that Liverpool are now likely to be allowed matches on Merseyside – and could even win the title at Goodison Park on the opening weekend after the league resumes – Klopp made a vow to the club’s supporters who have waited 30 years for the title.

“If we become champions, we will (celebrate) with all our supporters in the moment we are allowed to do so again,” he said.

“I can promise that if it happens, there will be a parade as well. Whenever. Who cares!

“We only need one day when everybody is able to come and then we will do that.”

Klopp has also passionate dismissed the argument that Liverpool fans can’t be trusted to follow guidelines about mass gatherings, if matches are played at Anfield.

Mirror Sport revealed at the weekend that Premier League clubs held a series of talks amongst themselves to thrash out an agreement over the issue of neutral grounds.

The clubs were unanimous in rejecting the idea, and asked the Premier League to go back to national police lead on football, deputy chief constable Mark Roberts, to look at the issue again.

The officer in charge of co-ordinating police policy for football had requested that up to 12 matches be included on a ‘high profile’ list, which would have seen them potentially switched to neutral venues.

Crucially though, Merseyside Police Chief Constable Andy Cooke had guaranteed his force could handle any issues relating to ‘crime and disorder’, which has persuaded officials to look again at playing remaining matches on the club’s own grounds.

Clubs are confident that will happen after their unanimous agreement, with the decision likely to be announced on Thursday.

And Klopp was strong in his dismissal of the argument against Liverpool fans breaking lockdown rules.

“Of course we would love to play our home games at Anfield,” he said. “If people are saying we cannot play at Anfield because our supporters will go there…c’mon, we are all adults.

“We love each other, that is clear. But if (fans not turning up at stadiums) is the only chance we will be able to play games, of course we will not show up there.

“We want to win it, and not to celebrate now or yesterday or whenever. We want to celebrate (all) together in the moment when it’s possible – and when that’s possible we go again, 100 per cent with all we have.”

The Reds manager also argued that Liverpool fans wouldn’t break the rule…because they will have many more trophies to celebrate with this incredible team. And he said he expects millions to come out to join in, when the time is right and rules allow.

“One million, two million, three million, five million, who cares, we’ll be there.

“But until then, we stick to the rules, do what is appropriate and that’s all, because it’s not the last time that we will celebrate something together,” he said.
