Coach Jurgen Klopp will help the reserve players make five full appearances in the Premier League – the condition to receive a medal for the championship team.
As a rule, each Premier League champion team receives 40 medals. They are given to the coaching staff, who play at least five times during the season. If leftover, the club will use it to pay tribute to the players they deem worthy.
Klopp won his first national championship with Liverpool
This season, Liverpool have three young players Neco Williams, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have just made two appearances. In addition, two reserve goalkeepers for Alisson Becker, Andy Lonergan and Caoimhin Kelleher, have not yet played a minute. With the remaining six matches, they are eligible for a reward, if Klopp uses all his substitution rights.
Dissatisfied with the 40-medal limit rule for champions, but Klopp agrees that only those who deserve this award. “We still go on the pitch to win. We cannot treat the remaining games as gifts for young players like Christmas,” he said. “I will still choose the right team and the best players.”
Liverpool had to wait for the Premier League to return after a three-month delay due to Covid-19. At that time, they led the second team Man City 25 points but still worried about the tournament being canceled. The first English championship in 30 years was a reward for Klopp’s teachers and students in a season they were overwhelming and had just lost one game in 31 rounds.
Klopp has led Liverpool since 2015, replacing Brendan Rodgers. He and his students reached the final of the Champions League 2018, but lost to Real Madrid 1-3. That same season, they came second in the Premier League. A year later, Liverpool reached the Champions League final again, and this time it was a joy to beat Tottenham.
Coach Jurgen Klopp said that the Liverpool player is not smart enough to take advantage of the gap, in the Everton draw of June 21.
Liverpool only launched 10 shots in the Everton 0-0 draw, despite controlling the ball 70% of the time. The Mane star didn’t even get a shot. The most dangerous chance of the game belonged to Everton, when Tom Davies hit the post in the 80th minute.
