Jürgen Klopp criticizes Liverpool fans after escalation

Trainer Jürgen Klopp from the English football champions Liverpool FC has criticized the behavior of some fans after winning the title and called them to stay at home. “We owe it to the weakest in our society,” wrote Klopp in an open letter to the local newspaper “Liverpool Echo” on Monday, “to the health workers who gave so much and whom we applauded, the police and the local authorities who help us as an association. “

Thousands of people celebrated the first championship in 30 years at the famous Pier Head in Liverpool on 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.

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. ”
