It Is Important To Finish Premier League Season – Liverpool Chairman
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner feels it would be “good for the country” to complete the Premier League season.
The Reds squad returned to training at Melwood on Wednesday after a two-month hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic, with the players working in small groups and following social distancing guidelines prior to the resumption of contact training.
The return to training is especially significant for Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are 25 points clear at the top of the table, needing just two wins from their remaining nine games to clinch the Premier League title.
Their chairman Werner wants to see the season completed but accepts safety – and the discovery of a vaccine – is a key priority as the pandemic continues.
“The more important thing is if we can figure out a way to get these matches played because I think it would be good for the country,” he said.
“The most important thing is safety. I do think the protocols that the Premier League are working on as somebody said its probably safer to play behind closed doors than to go to a supermarket.
“It’s a terrible situation we’re all in. Someday, hopefully, there will be a vaccine and we can return to the joy of being in a stadium and watching the elegant play of great football players.”
