Jurgen Klopp talked about their group chat on WhatsApp where he says, his boys are very lively and interested in knowing what everybody is up to which helps a lot in keeping the mood good. With a very positive demeanour, he said that they understand the current challenge, that everybody right now all over the world is facing the same problem and hopes for it to subside soon in the near future. He appreciated his players for their unyielding spirit in these difficult times.

He added how important it is at the present to work together and take care of each other and praised all those out there working day and night, fighting off the pandemic, protecting the lives of citizens and ensuring the supply of essentials, while we help by just staying home.

“A lot of people are out there working still, the health services, supermarkets- it’s incredible these people are doing their jobs, police, thousands of people, to make sure we can stay home.”

Emphasizing the importance of self-discipline and social distancing, Klopp said, “The only way to get football back, if that’s what the people want, the more disciplined we are now, the earlier we’ll get, piece by piece by piece, our life back. That’s how it is. There’s no other solution in the moment. Nobody has another solution.” 

He also admired the big-hearted gestures of his club for their contributions in Foundations and foodbanks and their tirelessly working backroom staff.

English football is experiencing a shutdown until 30th April, owing to this unprecedented circumstance. The last match Liverpool played was the UEFA Champions League against Atletico Madrid, which they lost.
