LFC fans are desperate to be there but Trent says 'please stay away'

It'll be a truly glorious and momentous occasion for Liverpool and the club's fan base on Wednesday night, as the team finally lifts the Premier League trophy after 30 years.

After the shock Chelsea victory over Man City earlier this month, Liverpool fans were out across the city in their thousands and at Anfield and the club have pleaded with fans to stay away tomorrow night.

As fate would have it, the Reds will take on Chelsea tomorrow night, after which we'll be presented with the Premier League trophy for the first time.

And echoing the words of Jurgen Klopp, Merseyside police and the local authorities, Trent has this evening spoken to the Liverpool Echo asking fans to stay safe and stay away from the ground.

He said: "I think that is something we really need to get across as a team and a club and hopefully the fans will listen.

"We have seen over the last few months that there are things that are bigger than football. These celebrations with the fans will be put on pause but we will celebrate with them.

"We know that the fans are desperate to be there and we want them there. It is something no-one wants to happen but this is the world we live in now.

"There will come a time when we are able to celebrate with them and it is massive for us. That is something we will do.

"But the message from the club, the players, and me, especially, is we understand the fans want to be there. And probably I understand that more than anyone. I know a lot of people want to be there to celebrate with us and that is understandable.

"But like I said, there are things that are bigger than football and that's health and safety."
