 Klopp Admonishes Liverpool Fans After Chaotic Celebrations

Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool fans to celebrate “in a safe way” during the coronavirus crisis after chaotic scenes marred the club’s Premier League title celebrations. Thousands of Liverpool fans gathered at the Pier Head for a second night of celebrations on Friday after the club became champions of England for the first time in 30 years. Police said officers were subject to violent confrontations and had glasses and bottles thrown at them as the celebrations continued in the city centre into the early hours. Klopp, in an open letter to fans in the Liverpool Echo, said he “did not love” the scenes that took place at Pier Head. “I am a human being and your passion is also my passion, but right now the most important thing is that we do not have these kind of public gatherings,” wrote Klopp. “We owe it to the most vulnerable in our community, to the health workers who have given so much and whom we have applauded and to the police and local authorities who help us as a club not to do this,” he added. Klopp said fans should celebrate in a safe way in private settings to avoid spreading the disease. He added: “If things were different I would love nothing more than to celebrate together, to have a parade that would be even bigger than the one after we won the Champions League last year so that we could all share this special moment but it just is not possible.” READ ALSO: Liverpool risk ban after winning
