Coach Jurgen Klopp vowed to oppose the request of the Premier League Committee for arranging Liverpool to play in the neutral field, in order to limit the ability of crowded fans of this team.
Liverpool receive “lightning strikes” if they win the Premier League
Recently, before the information that the Premier League organizers did not approve of Liverpool’s victory at Anfield, coach Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Liverpool did not want to play on neutral ground and wanted the Premier League to withdraw its decision.
The German military is confident that the Organizing Committee of the Premier League will not be able to bring Liverpool to the neutral ground due to pressure from public opinion and fans of this team. Earlier, the South Yorkshire Deputy Police Chief had announced Liverpool’s games would have to be played on neutral ground, in order to control the prospect of celebrating the championship of the Port of England team.
The Merseyside police soon responded with a proposal for Everton and Liverpool to continue playing matches on schedule at Goodison Park and Anfield. In the latest interview on beIN Sports, coach Jurgen Klopp also confidently declared that Liverpool could resist this plan of the Premier League organizing committee.
“Given the current situation, it is a good idea to limit our celebrations. However, playing on the neutral ground we do not approve” Jurgen Klopp said.
“I have heard that this plan is not official, I am confident that it will be resolved so that the team will continue to play on their home turf. If Liverpool wins the Premier League, we will be having a great title, a lot of emotions will flare up among the fans and the players”, the 53-year-old strategist added.
Coach Jurgen Klopp is confident about a bright future of Liverpool
Although quite assertive with the statement against the order from the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp still revealed the team had clear explanations to the players to make them more mentally comfortable. Previously, the German coach analyzed the importance between the two major titles that Liverpool pursued: the Premier League and the Champions League.
“It is difficult to answer which title is more important, but for Liverpool fans, it is very clear, it is the Premier League championship,” Jurgen Klopp said before the first round of the first round with Bayern. “But now we play in the Champions League and focus only on the Bayern game. The only thing we care about is playing the attractive, beautiful football that people are waiting for at Anfield.”
The Liverpool captain also affirmed that the day Liverpool won the championship would be special, regardless of the location or situation at that time. “I am sure that moment will be special. Certainly, You usually have about a 50% chance of winning on your own home ground. Therefore, the team may have to celebrate at a venue other than neither is Anfield nor is it a problem with us. We just want to be together for that moment and try to enjoy every moment. The team will celebrate according to the rules but it will be great if everything happens at Anfield” concluded Jurgen Klopp.
