Fans Brutally Mock Liverpool Supporters For Wanting To Hold Premier League Title Parade In June
Liverpool supporters have been savagely mocked by rival fans after wanting to hold a Premier League title parade this season as Jurgen Klopp suggested.
However, Liverpool fans were unable to celebrate their side's Premier League triumph with a title parade due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Klopp insisted last June that Liverpool could potentially hold their title parade once coronavirus-related restrictions were eased.
The Liverpool boss told Sky Sports: "There comes a day when life will get back to normal.
"When someone has found the vaccine, when someone has found a solution to the problem, when infection rates are zero or below -- that day will come eventually.
"Then we have the right to celebrate what we want to celebrate on that day.
"If this is the 12th or 13th matchday of next season and we want to celebrate it -- who is going to stop it? Then we still have the trophy and then we can drive it around town and stand on the bus.
"If other people then think that we are completely crazy, I honestly don't care.
"Can it then still be a special celebration? No question. It's different, but different is sometimes absolutely OK."
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced today that fans could be back in stadiums by mid-May as England's roadmap out of the lockdown was unveiled.
Some Liverpool fans are already optimistic about step four in the government's plans to introduce significant changes in the easing of restrictions, such as no legal limits on social contact.

Liverpool-supporting Twitter page The Anfield Talk tweeted: "From the 21st June, COVID restrictions are expected to be lifted in the UK which means Anfield will be full again from matchday 1 next season.
"Also means we can have our parade that Jurgen has promised us."
Klopp has admitted that Liverpool's title defence is 'over' as the Reds sit outside the top four and are a whopping 19 points behind league leaders City.
And Liverpool fans' call for a title celebration has been met with brutal responses from rival supporters on social media.
Johnson confirmed that up to 10,000 fans could return to football stadiums in May should the lifting of restrictions run as anticipated.
The Conservative Party leader said the current plans for restrictions to be eased required four tests on vaccines, new coronavirus variants to be met at each stage and infection rates.
"The turnstiles of our sports stadia will once again rotate," Johnson said.
