Liverpool could be banned from playing their remaining home games at Anfield unless fans of the club stop celebrating their league title victory, reports The Sun. There have been thousands of fans partying in the city centre after Liverpool clinched their first league title in 30 years on Thursday.
The club joined Merseyside Police, the City Council and Mayor Joe Anderson in condemning some of their own fans for ‘wholly unacceptable’ behaviour, which is in ‘risk of public safety’ as thousands of Liverpool fans gathered at the city centre, despite multiple warnings over the spread of coronavirus.
A joint statement from Liverpool, the police and the council said: “Several thousand people turned up at the Pier Head on Friday and some chose to ignore the social distancing guidance and risk public safety. Our city is still in a public health crisis and this behaviour is wholly unacceptable.”
“The potential danger of a second peak of Covid-19 still exists and we need to work together to make sure we don’t undo everything that has been achieved. When it is safe to do so, we will all work together to arrange a victory parade when everyone can celebrate. Until that time, the safety of our city and our people continues to be our No1 priority.”
