Reds president discusses title parade
Liverpool President Tom Werner has said the club will host a parade if the club achieves its long-awaited first Premier League title.
It has been suggested that it would not be safe to have mass rallies before 2021 at the earliest, but Werner said the club would wait whenever it was safe to do so.
Jurgen Klopp’s men currently have a 25-point lead over Man City’s closest opponents and could clinch their first championship title in 30 years within two weeks of a potential reboot.
“We hope that at some point people will be able to sit next to each other and enjoy the experience of a sporting event,” Werner told The Associated Press. “But that seems far away at the moment.
“I thought I could never imagine living something like this [Champions League parade]. Then someone said, “Well, if we win the Premier League, this parade will be overshadowed. “
“So I can’t wait to see a parade at a time when we can all get together because I know how much it means to all of our supporters.”
Dimitar Berbatov sends transfer warning to Kai Havertz
Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur forward Dimitar Berbatov told rising 20-year-old star Kai Havertz to keep his head on his shoulders amid speculation about the transfers.
Bayer Leverkusen’s attacking midfielder, much appreciated, was associated with his compatriot Klopp at Anfield this summer.
The Bundesliga golden boy has been in sensational form late, scoring seven goals and five assists in his last nine appearances and returning from the break with two goals in a 4-1 win over Werder Bremen.
But Berbatov, who was a key player for Leverkusen in eliminating Liverpool en route to the 2002 Champions League final, said he should focus on the present.
“Havertz needs to get used to the rumors about him after his two goals on Monday evening as the teams will chase after him,” the Bulgarian told Betfair.
“There is a lot of talk that Liverpool, Chelsea and other teams are interested in him, so now he has to be careful, don’t let that go to his head and stay focused on his game.
“He has enough quality and if he continues down the path he goes, the teams will always be there, they will not leave. “
Mascherano “surprised” by the evolution of Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp
Former Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano admitted he was surprised at how Liverpool had evolved during Klopp’s time as manager.
The Argentinian has made 139 appearances for Liverpool and has been a key player in Rafael Benitez’s time at the helm, before sealing a transfer to Barcelona in 2010.
“The team that continues to surprise me with the evolution they have known is Liverpool. It is clear that Klopp set it up in his own image and likeness, “Mascherano told Argentinian media TyC Sports, as reported by ECHO.
Liverpool FC essential news
“I’m ten years behind, I see how we played with Liverpool and nothing to do with what I see today.
“I have been Klopp since he coached Dortmund, who were an urgent team similar to what Liverpool do today, but now have added some positional play before it was much more direct.
“This evolution is what I like because in the end, it ends up being a more complete team. “
