Thank you, Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool, FC for your powerful message to the world. Put people’s health first, reduce risks, care for the vulnerable and compassion: this is the #WHOway. We will win the fight against #Covid – 19 if we are working together.
A powerful message to the world
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was greeted by the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, for sending a “powerful message to the world” on coronavirus. Liverpool uses the 25-point at the summit of the Premier League standings and is only two victories from consolidating the first title in 30 years. Therefore it is worth losing dramatically if the season has been canceled. Nevertheless, the former head of Borussia Dortmund, Klopp, emphasized that health was more important than football when he supported the shutdown of the league. “First of all, we all must do our best to protect each other. In society, I mean,” Klopp wrote in a statement posted on Liverpool’s official website confirming the suspension of the game in England at least until April 4.
Football is not important at all now
“It should be like this all the time in life, but at the moment, I think it matters more than ever.”I said before that football always seems to be the most important of the least important things. Today, football and football matches are not important at all.”Of course, we do not want to play in front of an empty stadium and do not want games or competitions to be suspended. If this helps one person to stay healthy – only one – we do it without question.”If it is a choice between football and the good of wider society, it is not competition. It is not so.
“The decision is being implemented with the motive of maintaining people’s safety. Because of this, we fully support it. We have seen how the members of the teams we are competing against become sick. This virus has shown that participation in football does not provide immunity.”
We will win this fight against Covid – 19
“Thank you, Jürgen Klopp and the Liverpool Football Club, for your powerful message to the world,” wrote Ghebreyesus on social media. “Put people’s health first, reduce risks, care for the vulnerable, and compassion: this is the way WHO. We will win the fight against Covid -19 if we work together. “This is the time to improve health and protect people from coronavirus.” WHO is grateful for the solidarity shown by Jürgen Klopp & Liverpool FC, Alisson Becker, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, FIFA, Peter Schmeichel, Andrea Radrizzani, Romain Grosjean and others in the world of sport.
