The spontaneous master party of thousands of Liverpool FC fans caused a lot of resentment. Jürgen Klopp has now addressed the appendix with haunting words. One has to think of the weakest in society.
Er had let her know how happy he was for her too. And that the title is also a title for her. But Jürgen Klopp had asked Liverpool supporters in a television interview last Thursday evening to stay home and not celebrate the English championship on the city streets. In the euphoria, hardly anyone stuck to it.
In an open letter, which was printed by the local newspaper “Liverpool Echo”, the coach has now criticized the behavior of some fans after winning the title and called on them to stay at home.
“We owe it to the weakest in our society,” wrote Klopp, “to the health workers who gave so much and whom we applauded, and the police and local authorities who help us as an association.”
Thousands of people had celebrated the first championship in 30 years at the famous Pier Head in Liverpool last Friday. The mood changed and violent clashes with the police ensued. The authorities are also investigating arson for improper use of fireworks. The damage incurred should amount to the equivalent of just under 11,000 euros. Mountains of garbage were also seen in photos in British media.
“When the time is right, we will celebrate”
The club described the events as “completely unacceptable”. Klopp, who in the letter also expressed his love for Liverpool and his thanks to the supporters for the support during the season, made an urgent appeal to the reason of the fans. “Your passion is my passion,” wrote the 53-year-old, “but the most important thing now is that we refrain from such meetings.”
The trainer promised that the master party would be rescheduled. “When the time is right, we will celebrate,” he said. “We will enjoy this moment and we will paint the city red. But for now, please stay at home as far as possible. This is not the time to be in large groups in the city center, nor to gather near football stadiums. ”
