Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the Reds will be ready for the restart of the Premier League and that football will remain the ‘wonderful game’ even it is played in an empty stadium.
Several Premier League players have voiced their concerns on the resumption of the league as the discussion for ‘Project Restart’ goes on. However, the Reds have opened their training ground and Klopp is convinced that players will be ready for the restart.
When asked if the players will be ready to start, Klopp said: “Yes. Look, football is a game where pretty much we have the same situation. We play against another team.
“We don’t have to be at our all-time best, we have to be at our best possible and that is exactly the same situation for the other teams. Whenever we will start we will have the same time for preparation and our job, as always, is to use the situation you are in. We will be in as good a shape as possible and that is what we have to use then.”
The Reds will secure their much awaited league title in an empty stadium once the Premier League restarts.
“We all started playing football without supporters and we loved this game, not because of the atmosphere in a stadium,” he added.
“Meanwhile, we are used to it and we know that’s the real football but now, if we can not play like this for a few months, hopefully only, that doesn’t mean the game is not still a wonderful game. I really hope that it works out in Germany and we can then start at some point in England as well.”
Liverpool are top of the table with 82 points from 29 games. The Reds are just a few wins away from winning the league for the first time in the Premier League era.
