Liverpool defender Andy Robertson hopes that a few extra beers for Jurgen Klopp will be enough to allow his side a few days off after the Reds clinched the title in the Premier League. After seeing Manchester City lose 2-1 to Chelsea on Thursday, Liverpool claimed their 19th league title, their first title since 1990 and their first ever Premier League trophy.
Liverpool’s next game will be on July 2nd and Robertson hopes Klopp will allow the squad some days off. “We’re still trying to convince the boss downstairs to give us a few days off! Give him a couple more beers and I think we’ll get two days off,” Andy Robertson joked to Match of the Day. “We won’t tell you the exact location but we are all in a hotel together as a team. We thought something hopefully special was going to happen and that’s how it turned out.”
“We went a bit crazy but the place went a bit silent when [Kevin] De Bruyne bagged a worldie free-kick. Luckily Chelsea reacted off that”, he said. “The place went wild and we could sit back and enjoy the last five minutes.” Klopp watched the game with his team in the hotel and after game he admitted he was overwhelmed when Liverpool finally ended their league drought.
