Klopp questions limit on Premier League crowds


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has questioned the logic behind a potential limit of 2 000 fans at Premier League games.

Premier League clubs are expected to welcome back supporters where possible when the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson reveals the new tiered system to replace the national lockdown.

Premier League stadiums in Tier 1 will be able to host up to 4 000 fans, In Tier 2, the cap is set at 2 000 fans while Stadiums in Tier 3 will have to continue holding fixtures behind closed doors.

Klopp has welcomed the good news but reckons the plan has not been thought thoroughly.

“I don’t understand why you can put 2 000 people in a stadium with 60 000 [capacity], and 2 000 people in a stadium when 9 000 people would fit in, I don’t understand it,” said Klopp.

Thursday’s Government announcement on which regions face the toughest restrictions from December 2 is set to open up disparity on which clubs can and cannot immediately reopen their turnstiles.
