Premier League Team, Liverpool said that they were ‘disappointed’ by the city’s mayor saying the season should not be re-started even behind closed doors because of the risk of fans being gathered around Anfield to celebrate the victory of Liverpool.
Currently, Liverpool have a game in hand and have 25 points against the next ranking opposition. Due to national wide lockdown the game was suspended in March whole Liverpool needing only two wins to secure their first top flight title in 30 years.
On Friday, Premier League clubs are going to set a meeting to discuss the way of finishing the season.
On Thursday, Mayor Joe Anderson told that the health and the safety is the first priority, so the best thing to give the title to Liverpool on there hand as a deserving championship.
“Even if it was behind closed doors, there’d be many thousands of people who would turn up outside Anfield,” said Anderson, a fan of Liverpool’s city rivals Everton.
There’s not many people who would respect what we were saying and stay away from the ground, a lot of people would come to celebrate so I think it’s a non-starter”, club said in a statement.
“I think it would be really difficult for the police to keep people apart and maintain social distancing if they were going to celebrate outside Anfield. It would be farcical. A lack of evidence to support such claims. In recent weeks, we have engaged with supporters’ groups who have informed us of their determination to respect social distancing measures,” the club added.
Club told that the events of football resumption after being announced, so they will continue there work with other key stake holders.
