Liverpool to call off Klopp’s farewell parade?

According to the Daily Express, Liverpool had called off any season-ending celebration because they no longer seem likely to win the Premier League, which was one of their final goals under former manager Jurgen Klopp. 

Even though Klopp oversaw the team’s most prosperous time in the Premier League era and won the Carabao Cup in February, according to This Is Anfield, he does “not want any potential event to be about him”. 

The team had a number of backup plans for a parade that were contingent on both domestic and European success, but those preparations have apparently been shelved now that the league title is virtually out of reach and the team has crashed out of the Europa League.

Despite dropping points in two straight games and behind league leaders Arsenal by five points, Liverpool still has a slim chance of winning the league title—just 0.1%, says Opta. 

Since Klopp took over in 2015, Liverpool has staged two parades: one following their 2019 Champions League victory and the other following their 2018 FA Cup and Carabao Cup victories.

Speaking earlier this season, Klopp reiterated his stance on any parade not being focussed on him, saying: “That’s the one part that is not so cool, that it could be seen as [a farewell]. I don’t think that makes sense.”
