Days before the return of the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp, coach of Liverpool; assured that they are not yet champions and that they know it; so they will try to win every possible match. “I have missed football a lot, it’s incredible,” Klopp said in an interview with the British BBC. “I know it is not the most important thing in life, but it is my passion. and I hope that people expect it with the same enthusiasm as we do.”
After such a long wait to win the Premier League; Liverpool faces the anti-climax of doing so in front of empty stands with all remaining 92 league games to be played behind closed doors.
When the Premier resumes on June 17, Liverpool will start as the leader of the classification with a 25 point advantage over Manchester City. If Guardiola’s men fall to Arsenal in their first game and Liverpool win in their debut, Klopp’s men will win their first league in 30 years.
“It is great to think about it, but we are not champions yet and we know it. We know we are close, but being close is not being there yet. There are 27 points to play and we will try to take them all,” said the German.
The hypothetical celebration for the title, first internally
On a possible parade to celebrate the title; Jurgen Klopp indicated that it will be done when it is safe to do so. “If we become champions; whatever celebration is possible we will do internally and then with our fans at the time we are allowed to do so,” said Klopp. “I can promise you that if that happens, there will be a parade as well. Anytime. We just need a day when everyone can and we will.”
