Klopp doesn’t want to hear any more homophobic songs from Liverpool fans

Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp criticized on Thursday the group of his own fans who sang a chant with homophobic connotations last weekend directed at a Norwich player.

Billy Gilmour, Chelsea midfielder on loan to Norwich for this season, was described as ‘rent boy’, a term used to designate men who prostitute themselves, by some Liverpool fans, after the victory (3-0) of the Reds on the first day of the Premier League.

After meeting with Paul Amann, founder of ‘Kop Out’, a group of LGBT supporters from Liverpool, Klopp condemned these events.

“I never understood why someone should sing against another person in a football stadium. I never got it. And I have never liked it, “said the coach in words posted on the club’s Twitter account.

The German also stressed that this type of chant was not at all an encouragement for the team.

“When they start singing (the names of the players) ‘Bobby Firmino’, ‘Mo Salah’, or ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, this kind of thing gives you goose bumps and it is an additional motivation” , he stressed.

“The other songs are a total waste of time and those who think what they are singing are idiots,” concluded the coach, whose team will host Burnley (11:30 GMT) on Saturday, on the second date of the Premier League. (AFP)
