Liverpool fans ‘can sing if they want’ but Jurgen Klopp sends massive message to fans
Jurgen Klopp insists “nothing has changed” despite Liverpool extending their lead at the top of the Premier League.
Liverpool have been a dominant force this season and swept away pretty much every team that they have come across as they stroll towards their first Premier League title in 30-years.
And after seeing Manchester City draw 2-2 at home to Crystal Palace in a shock result, they beat Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield, meaning a 16-point lead and a game in hand over the reigning Premier League Champions.
After Mo Salah’s second goal late on, fans at Anfield sang “We’re gonna win the league” for the first time this season, and though they believe the title is coming back to Merseyside, Klopp is refusing to get carried away.
He said on the Sky Sports website: “They can sing whatever they want, apart from my name, before the game is finished! I am not here to dictate what they have to sing. If our fans would not be in a good mood now, that would be really strange!
“What I can tell you is we are here to work, it’s as easy as that. Of course, it’s a very positive atmosphere, but I have to keep myself concentrated.
“We play on Thursday against Wolves, and to be honest I am only interested in that game and nothing else! Of course they are allowed to dream, free to sing whatever they want, as long as they do their job when we play. We will not be part of that party yet, but it’s no problem.”
He Added: “They can sing that, but they sang that a couple of times in the past [in previous seasons], I think! It’s no problem. Everybody should celebrate a situation, apart from us [the team], but we have no problem with that! We have exactly the same situation plus three points. But nothing else changes. I will tell you in the moment when it feels different, but it feels exactly the same.
“I have no idea if we are to be caught or not, I don’t care. First and foremost it’s the Premier League. So in the Premier League we play Thursday at Wolves.
“Why should I think about things more than that? I am not smart enough to do that, to be honest, I’ve not enough space in my brain to think about different things!”
