Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has sent a festive message to fans and vowed: “Our time for celebration together will come, I can promise you this.” The Reds manager has reflected on the high and lows of 2020 in a Christmas Day open letter addressed to supporters. Liverpool finally ended a 30-year wait for the title as they were crowned Premier League champions back in summer. But it has also been a tough and tragic year for so many across the world in the ongoing fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Reflecting on his team winning the league,
Jurgen Klopp said: “Of course, when we look back on 2020, now and in the years to come, for anyone who is with us they will always remember these words: Liverpool Football Club, champions of England. That sounds great, doesn’t it? How it always is in life, sometimes it is funny how things come together and for us in our bubble, we were able to be together the night we became champions. I think you have seen the footage by now… and some of the dancing! But it was important for me that we were able to share this special moment together. The boys deserved this. I will never forget the time we spent together but apart if you like during the lockdown. Our WhatsApp group was on fire, let me say it like this! But it showed me the togetherness and team spirit that exists within this group of players. I didn’t need somebody to tell me that, I knew it already, but what I love about this, how I have always said, is all the different nationalities, cultures, beliefs and backgrounds coming together and working towards one goal as colleagues and as friends. Really, it is something amazing when you think of it and, as I said, it shows how better we are when we are together as human beings. So, to share this moment together – when we became champions, a moment we will all remember and savour for the rest of our lives – was massive. It was emotional, as I am sure you saw on the TV afterwards. Then to have the trophy handed to us by Sir Kenny Dalglish… wow! A smile on your face during an otherwise tough year for all and I am looking forward so much to seeing you again soon.”
