Liverpool FC Confirm Premier League Trophy Presentation Details For Special Kop Ceremony
The Winning Scene is Obvious
Premier League champions Liverpool will get their hands on the trophy in a Kop ceremony including legend Kenny Dalglish after Chelsea game
The Undoubted Champions of the League
According to the officials, Sir Kenny Dalglish is going to be on hand to deliver Liverpool their Premier League winners’ medals after the visit from Chelsea the next week. The Reds are preparing to host the Londoners in the final Anfield game of the season on Wednesday, July 22. And also here, they will get their silverware at full time after wrapping up the championship in record-setting time last month. After defeating Crystal Palace 4-0 at Anfield on June 24, Jurgen Klopp’s side had been confirmed as champions of England when Manchester City got beaten 2-1 at Chelsea the next day.
The First-Ever Celebration in the Last Thirty Years
Even getting injured for the remainder of the season, it is undoubtedly Captain Jordan Henderson who gets his hands on the trophy first with Klopp confirming last week that his skipper is going to the front and center for the club’s first title celebration in the past 30 years.
Who is Going to Wear the Red?
Klopp says, “I don’t have any idea what will be the rule. If you are not there in the starting lineup that will be challenging for Hendo – then I don’t know what we are going to do,” Moreover, “Then Hendo will be there and he will wear the matching kit and everything will be fine in the long run.” As Burnley visited there on Saturday afternoon, some of the decorative flags on the Kop had made way for what seemed to be the imminent installation of a podium before Chelsea makes a visit there.
How does The Show Will look Without Fans?
And now the club has clarified in more detail how Liverpool’s first league championship since 1990 will be discernible and marked with no fans allowed to attend the game because of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The iconic Dalglish, who was the last manager standing on the victory stand with the Reds, will be on hand along with Premier League chief executive Richard Masters to hand-deliver the medals to Klopp and his team.
Enjoy The Show On Your TV Sets
Dalglish holds an ambassadorial role at Anfield and club officials are certain as it is acceptable that the renowned Scot passes on the awards to Klopp’s current crop. A special platform has been designed on the Kop for the team to lift the trophy itself with Liverpool’s worldwide fans. Unfortunately, the lovers and fans won’t be able to applause, as there won’t be any audiences, and fans will have to tune in from their television sets.
The subsequent celebrations and the game against Frank Lampard’s Blues will be broadcast on free-to-air TV to ensure fans can enjoy the trophy show from home. In the United Kingdom, the viewers can tune on Sky’s Pick channel on their TV sets. The decision to broadcast the game for free is to keep supporters from gathering together around the ground with Liverpool keen to deliver stay-at-home messages alongside the local council, and Merseyside Police earlier this month.
