Klopp in support of peaceful protests by fans

Share

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has finally commented on their postponed game against Manchester United last Sunday.

The Red Devils supporters protested outside the ground against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club before a number managed to break into the stadium.

The German mentor says protests are “fine if they are completely peaceful”.

He went on to state that fans need to be careful and calm down when raising their grievances.

“Was I surprised this kind of things happened? No, I’m an absolute believer in democracy,” he added. “It means I am happy that people want to tell their opinion, that’s completely fine.”

However, Klopp also expressed his disappointment over reports of violence and damage despite supporting fans’ right to protest.

“I heard some policemen got injured – these kind of things should not happen for sure. You shouldn’t break down the doors,” laments the 53-year-old boss.

“To tell the world what you think about things is completely fine, as long as it is completely peaceful and as far as I know it wasn’t completely peaceful and then it is not right any more.”
