After playing their last home game yesterday, Liverpool were finally presented with the Premier League Trophy, as their 30-year wait came to an end!
There were no fans present to join in the celebrations due to restrictions to contain the spread of Covid-19, but Klopp promised there will be a real party when it is safe.
“It was absolutely great, absolutely great. It made it even more special that the families could be in the stadium. They were not allowed for the game, but for the trophy lift it was allowed,” Klopp said, adding that they knew they were in the stadium, “but because of the lights we didn’t see them, but I knew my family – which I didn’t see for a pretty long time – was here tonight, which made it even more special because you want to share these moments with loved ones.”
“All my loved ones were around me with the players, the staff and the people I work with. My family means a lot to me, so it was really, really special in that moment. I loved the moment – and the boys did.”
“It’s strange, you stand on a stage and there is nobody – not nobody, but not as many as you would imagine in a situation like that – but I have to say, the people who organised it made the best of it. If it would have been the last game – win today and we are champions – then we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to go on the Kop.”
