The Bundesliga was the first European league to recover from its coronavirus suspension when it started behind closed doors on Saturday.
It’s still a “wonderful game”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is itching for football to return, saying it’s still a “wonderful game” even without fans. The Bundesliga was the first European league to recover from its coronavirus suspension when it started behind closed doors on Saturday. Several more leagues in Europe hoped to emulate their German counterpart. The Premier League is included in this group, and the English top-flight are looking to return to the field in June. Although there are many more questions to iron out before that can happen. Several clubs disagreed with the proposed game plan for neutral matches. While many players admitted that they were still concerned about their safety.
Liverpool will be in the best possible form
Klopp, on whose Liverpool side are just two wins from securing his first title in the Premier League, admitted that the players might not be in the best case, if the football returns to England, but said that each team would be in the same position after a potential overhang of three months or more. “Look, football is a game where we practically have the same situation. The Reds play against another team,” Klopp told reporters. “We won’t have to be at our all-time best, we have to be at our best possible, and that is the same situation for other teams.” Whenever we start, we will have the same time for preparation, and our job is always to use the situation you are in. We will be in the best possible form, and that is what we should use then.”
If the Premier League could return, it would do so without fans in the stands. Although the experience will not be ideal for players, Klopp is confident that his team and others will adjust. We all started playing football without supporters and loved this game, not because of the atmosphere in a stadium,” Klopp said. “Meanwhile, We are accustomed to it and know that’s the real football. But now, If we can’t play like this for several months, I hope only several months, that does not mean that the game is still not great. I hope that it works out in Germany, and we can then start at some point in England too.”
