Anfield picture leaks as Liverpool make change to Kop ahead of Premier League trophy lift

Liverpool boss Klopp has also made it clear the club plan to hold a trophy parade around the city once it is safe to do so, with 750,000 having turned out for the Champions League bus parade a year ago.

The coronavirus pandemic has meant mass public gatherings have been banned for the last four months and Liverpool fans will not be able to legally congregate while social distancing guidelines remain in place.

But supporters assembled in their numbers outside Anfield the night of Liverpool’s status as English champions was confirmed and many also turned out at the city’s waterfront the following Saturday.

In an open letter in the Liverpool Echo, Klopp urged the club’s fanbase to respect government guidelines and prevent any further spread of COVID-19.

He wrote: “I am a human being and your passion is also my passion but right now the most important thing is that we do not have these kind of public gatherings.

“We owe it to the most vulnerable in our community, to the health workers who have given so much and whom we have applauded and to the police and local authorities who help us as a club not to do this.

“Please – celebrate – but celebrate in a safe way and in private settings, whereby we do not risk spreading this awful disease further in our community.

“We owe it to ourselves and each other to do what is right and at this moment that means being together and being there for one another by being apart.
