Jurgen Klopp’s urging Liverpool fans to keep title party ‘safe and private’

Warning: Klopp

JURGEN KLOPP has urged Liverpool fans to celebrate ‘in a safe way’ after thousands gathered on the city’s waterfront on Friday.

Supporters flocked to the Pier Head for a second night of celebrations after the club became champions of England on Thursday.

A number of arrests were made as glasses and bottles were thrown at police as celebrations continued into the early hours.

Police said £10,000 worth of damage was caused to the Liver Building after a firework landed on a balcony. In an open letter to the Liverpool Echo, Klopp wrote of his love for the fans’ passion and commitment as he thanked them and the city for helping to win the title.

But he said: ‘What I did not love was the scenes at the Pier Head. Right now the most important thing is we do not have these kind of public gatherings. Please celebrate but in a safe way and in private settings.

‘We have all done so much to fight Covid-19 and this effort cannot go to waste.
