In case the rest of the Premier League season is postponed owing to the coronavirus pandemic, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes denying his team the championship will be “unfair”.
All 20 Major League clubs on Monday decided to speed up their return to training because they expect to start practicing again from June 12. However, there is no assurance that games will be safe to go forward by then.
Now, it appears, Klopp believes that putting a premature end to the effort would have been unfair, and trying to deprive Liverpool of the glory.
At a DFB Academy talk, he said: “There was discussion that people tried to rule the season null and void. So you thought: ’Huh? We’ve completed 76 percent of the season so you just want to erase the thing?’”
“It would have been something that I might honestly consider unjust, only to pretend that didn’t happen,” he added.
“The most critical aspect is coping with the situation, but it doesn’t mean other issues don’t exist at all simply because they’re less relevant,” he concluded, supporting Project Restart with these words.
