Liverpool: Fans laud Jurgen Klopp after he urges fans to “stay at home” if Reds win Premier League

Liverpool: Fans laud Jurgen Klopp after he urges fans to “stay at home” if Reds win Premier League - Liverpool

A number of Liverpool fans have hailed Jurgen Klopp after the manager issued a plea to the club’s supporters to observe social distancing guidelines if the Reds clinch the Premier League title.

Following this week’s news that the English top flight will resume from 17 June, Liverpool’s quest to end their 30-year wait for the title looks eminently more achievable, with the runaway leaders needing only two wins from their remaining nine matches to be crowned champions.

PA reporter Simon Peach tweeted on Friday (via @SimonPeach) that several of those games could be played at neutral venues at the request of police to minimise the possibility of Liverpool supporters gathering en masse to celebrate their long-awaited Premier League glory. However, Klopp has since urged Kopites not to ignore social distancing measures if their moment of triumph comes next month:

He told beIN Sports [via Evening Standard]: “I heard that there is some talk [about neutral venues], I’m pretty sure that we can solve the situation here as well in Liverpool. I heard a day ago a really good phrase about that we have the best home fans in the world, and now we need the best stay-at-home fans in the world.”

His comments were subsequently shared on Twitter by The Athletic journalist James Pearce (via @JamesPearceLFC).

On the day after Liverpool won the Champions League a year ago this weekend, an estimated 750,000 fans thronged the streets of the city to welcome them home (as per Sky News), attesting to the mass public outpouring of joy that the club’s successes can evoke.
