Liverpool to lift Premier League trophy on the Kop after Chelsea visit

by OtownGist

Liverpool will lift the Premier League trophy in a special ceremony on the Kop following next Wednesday’s fixture with Chelsea.

They secured their first league title in 30 years in June but fans will not be at Anfield to watch the trophy being lifted because of Covid-19.

The ceremony will be free to air on television and club legend Sir Kenny Dalglish will hand out medals.

Captain Jordan Henderson will lift the trophy despite currently being injured.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has stated that Henderson – who lifted the Champions League trophy last season – will be the first Liverpool captain to lift the league title since Alan Hansen in 1990 despite his season being over because of a knee injury.

Henderson and his team-mates will receive the trophy on a podium surrounded by banners made by fans and built in the middle of the famous Kop Stand.

The club has urged fans to “stay at home to enjoy the ceremony” in light of the ongoing measures in place to safeguard against the spread of coronavirus.
