Munich – In times like these, football actually appears to be a minor matter. Even for those who earn their living with it. In an interview on the club’s website, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp spoke for the first time publicly about the global corona pandemic, showing his soft side.
A video from a hospital in which clinic employees sing the Reds anthem moved him to tears. “When you started ‘You’ll never walk alone’, I immediately had to cry,” said Kloppo.
“My English is not good enough to find the right words. It is just incredible and shows everything. These people put themselves in danger to help others. My admiration and appreciation for them could not be greater.”
Emotionally watching this. So much respect for NHS staff at the best of times, but at the moment, putting their lives on the line to protect us from this virus, wow! Total heroes. #YNWA #NHSHeroes pic.twitter.com/VJlA4WrsXO

Klopp calls for cohesion
The former Dortmund also called for all people to stick together. This crisis can only be solved together.
“Four or five weeks ago it still seemed that many countries thought: this is our problem, this is our problem, this is our problem – we have a problem with it. Now nature has shown us that we are all the same, and we all have the same problems at the same time. We have to work together to find a solution. ”
The soccer compulsory break is spent by Klopp like most people at the moment. “I watched a couple of films. For example, the” Taken “trilogy. I do things for which there is no time. I am still in this phase. Two weeks are not that long.”
Premier League will initially pause until the end of April
The hope that the season can still be played in the Premier League is still alive. “The more disciplined we stick to the guidelines now, the sooner we will get our lives back piece by piece. There is no other solution. We have to keep our distance now.”
With a 25-lead lead over Manchester City, Liverpool’s first championship in 30 years is within reach. Premier League play was suspended until at least April 30 due to the spread of the corona virus.
