Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that he is confident the fans will respect a period of silence for Queen Elizabeth II before Tuesday’s Champions League match against Ajax. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, a minute’s silence is the right thing to do and he doesn’t think the club’s supporters need any kind of advice from him to pay respect to the dead.
Klopp added that the respect shown by supporters to Cristiano Ronaldo when he lost his baby boy is proof that there should be no concerns about the behaviour of Liverpool fans.
His words, “There are plenty of examples where people showed exactly the right respect,”
“One which surprised me, and I was really proud of that moment, was last season when we played Manchester United around a very sad situation with Cristiano Ronaldo’s family.”
“And that is what I expect. For me, it is clear that’s what we have to do. That’s it.”
“I am 55 years old and she is the only Queen of England I ever knew. I don’t know her, but the things you can see she was a really warm, nice, loved lady and that is all that I need to know.”
“It is obviously not about what I think, but what people felt who are much closer to her and I respect their grief a lot, and that is why I will show my respect tomorrow night with the minute’s silence if it goes through.”
