Liverpool Fan Wants Reds To Receive A Trophy For Finishing Second In The Premier League

A Liverpool fan has made a really, really absurd claim after suggesting that the Reds should receive a trophy for finishing second in the Premier League.

Okay, there's no denying that Jürgen Klopp's men have been fantastic in keeping Manchester City on their toes in a nail-biting title race, but second place does mean second place.

However, the fan in question, called Cameron, decided to share his thoughts with talkSPORT's Andy Goldstein, who was left in tears of laughter at the notion of Liverpool receiving a trophy for coming second.

"It's been such a gripping title race. I thought we should get a trophy if we finish second," he said.

"If we get 97 points, it's astronomical, [Sir] Alex Ferguson never got that many.

"Come up against this city team, they've spent all that money.

"We've got Champions League semi-final coming up, what have they got?

"We've won the Champions League five times, what's anybody else done?"

In fact, Goldstein couldn't believe what he was hearing, so much so that he had to ask the fan a question: "Are you winding me up, are you an Evertonian?"

Unsurprisingly, football fans didn't share Cameron's standpoint on Liverpool receiving a runners-up trophy.

"As a Liverpool fan, fans like this embarrass me," one user wrote on Instagram.

Another posted: "And this is why people can't stand 'pool fans [as] 90 per cent of them are like this ballon [sic].

Someone else said: "Watch there be a petition for this."

A fourth added: "Liverpool fans are the gifts that keep on giving."

Liverpool are second in the league after Manchester City claimed a 1-0 victory over Leicester City on Monday.

Vincent Kompany's rocket of a strike was enough to separate the two sides, with City striker Sergio Agüero initially saying to the 33-year-old club captain not to take the shot.

Pep Guardiola's men will travel to Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, while Liverpool will host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on the final day of the season.

Will City slip up to Brighton?
