Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes any repeat of the Manchester United supporters’ protest which forced their match at Old Trafford to be postponed to 2021 should result in his side being awarded three points.
Thousands of United supporters marched on the ground ahead of last year’s May 2 fixture – which was to be played behind closed doors under Covid protocols – to protest Glazer family ownership.
But when some entered the stadium, the game was postponed and had to be played later in the month.
With further anti-Glazer protests expected ahead of Monday’s match between the two arch-rivals, Klopp said he did not expect to face the same problems but that if for some reason the match does not go ahead , he wanted to win.
When asked if there were any plans in place should a protest cause similar issues, he replied, “Plans for the game not happening? Yes, go home by bus.
“I really hope it doesn’t happen, but if it does I think we will get points.
“We have nothing to do with the situation and if the fans want the game not to happen, we can’t just rearrange the game again and fit it somewhere into an incredibly busy season.
“I don’t think and really hope that won’t happen – I have no idea what could happen and I don’t think about it.
“People tell us everything is fine, we go there and play the game with hope and go home, but in a situation like this the other team should always score points because they have nothing to do with it and she prepared it.”
