Klopp message to LFC fans: 'all the things are only really special because of you'

If we weren't all already excited enough about the football season starting again in England, a rallying cry from Jurgen Klopp is sure to push us over the edge.


Liverpool - of course - sit just two wins away from our first league title in 30 years, and it could even be wrapped up as early as Sunday, provided results go our way.


That would require Man City getting beaten by Arsenal on Wednesday night, whilst Liverpool themselves would need to beat Everton in the derby on Sunday at Goodison.


But it will be a little bit different, as fans will not be present for any of the remaining Premier League games, something that's been the same across all restarting European leagues.


Liverpool get a few days grace, with their first game back not coming til Sunday evening, and Klopp has a message for LFC fans ahead of the game.


Whilst he talks about how this moment has only arrived because of how the majority of people have behaved, he does add: "The league starts again, which is great. So we can play again and we can go for our massively big target again.


"And for this, we need you - we always needed you. All the things are only really special because of you.


"We had a few sessions and games now, internal games and one against Blackburn in our stadium, and the biggest difference before the game was You'll Never Walk Alone without you. It's still a wonderful song, it's still great to hear, but without you it's not even 5%.


"But that's how we have to take it in the moment. There will be a moment when the whole 300, 400 million choir can sing it and that's the moment we are all waiting for.


"But until then, we still play football and it will be completely different. But it's still football and it's still for you.


With pubs, bars and Anfield not allowing paying customers to watch the match in their usual way, the televised games are likely to be viewed by hundreds of millions of fans across the globe, and Klopp wants to feel the force of our support for the remaining nine games.


He finished by saying: "So that means we will be in the stadium and you will be at home. I can promise you, we will feel your support. I will make the boys feel your support.

"We will use it, you are still 80-90% of the petrol in our tanks. So we really will use that and we will need that.

"But the final message - stay safe, support us from home. We are still with you and you'll never walk alone."
