Jurgen Klopp: It Would Be Unfair To Deny Liverpool The Title3 years ago
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp says it would be unfair not to give his club the English Premier League title if the 2019/20 season is called off.
The Reds hold a 25-point lead over closest rivals Manchester City and require two wins to clinch their first league title in 30 years.
Speaking at the DFB Academy, the UEFA Champions League and Club World Cup winner said:
There was talk that people wanted to declare the season null and void. So you thought: ‘Huh? We have played 76 per cent of the season and you just want to delete the thing?’
That would have been something that I personally would find unfair, to just say that it didn’t happen.

We are first in the home table, we are first in the away table. It is a season in which we should become champions.
Dealing with a crisis is the most important thing. But that doesn’t mean that certain things are of no importance at all just because they are less important.
I think there are worse things in life than not becoming champions. A lot of people around us have big problems. People die, it always happens, but at the moment because of a virus that we all didn’t know and for which nobody could be prepared.
We cannot prepare for everything, but also have to react often. That’s the biggest part of my life, reacting to things that I didn’t expect.
Premier League clubs met on Monday and agreed on “Step One” towards “Project Restart”, that is, the resumption of the season after its suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic in March.
Step One allows squads to start training in small groups without contact between players.
