Liverpool coach, Jurgen Klopp has come out to say that it would not be fair to deny his team the EPL title if the remainder of the season is canceled.
Klopp recently revealed that scrapping the league after teams have played 76 percent of the season does not sound like the right thing to do.
According to him, Liverpool is first in the home table and away table, so the current leaders have definitely worked hard to deserve the EPL title without any doubt.
He, however, added that there are worse things in life than the Reds not becoming champions, and dealing with the coronavirus pandemic is the most important thing right now.
His words, “There was talk that people wanted to declare the season null and void. So you thought: ‘Huh? We have played 76 percent of the season and you just want to delete the thing?’
“That would have been something that I personally would find unfair, to just say that it didn’t happen.
“We are first in the home table, we are first in the away table. It is a season in which we should become champions.
“Dealing with the crisis is the most important thing. But that doesn’t mean that certain things are of no importance at all just because they are less important.
“I think there are worse things in life than not becoming champions. A lot of people around us have big problems. People die, it always happens, but at the moment because of a virus that we all didn’t know and for which nobody could be prepared.
“We cannot prepare for everything, but also have to react often. That’s the biggest part of my life, reacting to things that I didn’t expect.”
“People say: ‘How can you think about football, in moments when people are dying out there?’ Nobody does that, but like every other branch of business, we have to prepare for the time afterwards, because it will come of course.
“When it comes to football, that means that we will start training at some point and to make sure everyone is safe, unique measures are taken.
“As they were made in Germany, they are now being taken in England. The training centers of the English professional clubs will be the safest. There are no places to be infected at all.”
