The new English champions Liverpool FC around team manager Jürgen Klopp has criticized parts of his own fan scene.
Thousands of supporters had celebrated the first championship in 30 years on Thursday evening at the stadium on Anfield, without keeping a minimum distance or wearing masks – despite the Corona pandemic. The Daily Mail even reported tens of thousands of people taking to the streets after their triumph.
“Our city is still in a health crisis and this behavior is unacceptable,” said a joint statement by the club, the police and the Liverpool City Council. There have been repeated warnings over the past week that Liverpool is located in an area that is particularly affected by Covid-19.
Some fans continued the celebrations on Friday evening, among other things, fireworks were burned down.
“The potential threat of a second wave from COVID-19 is still there, and we need to work together to ensure that we don’t destroy the progress we’ve made through the lockdown,” the release said.
It was also promised to arrange a victory parade as soon as the circumstances allowed. Until then, the safety and health of our city and its residents must be given priority.
Liverpool had won the Premier League prematurely on Thursday night, as title rival Manchester City had lost 1-2 to Chelsea FC. In advance, the police had called on Liverpool fans to celebrate the title at home.
