Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has shut down claims that the Reds’ soon to be Premier League triumph would be erased due to Coronavirus .
The Telegraph recently reported that the Merseyside outfit wouldn’t necessarily be crowned as Champions should the virus lead to the Premier League season being cut short.
Klopp reiterated that ‘Liverpool fans are not silly enough to believe’ such claims. Whilst the virus’ spread is worrying, Klopp raised some good points as to why ‘deleting’ the entire season would not make sense.

It seem as though these suggestions are perhaps being exaggerated, from a neutral perspective – the Reds are 22 points clear at the top, the Merseyside outfit officially being crowned champions is now a formality.
