Liverpool chairman Werner issues warning to fans over stunning PL record

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has called on the club’s fans to “savour” the current run put together by Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Having clinched their sixth Champions League crown last season to soften the blow of missing out on the Premier League title, Klopp‘s team have continued in the same impressive manner this term.

Twenty-four wins from 25 games in the top flight have put the Reds well on the way to clinching the club’s first league title in 30 years, with such a run of form opening up a 22-point lead at the top of the table.

Indeed, Liverpool‘s unbeaten run in the league stands at 42 games, level with Nottingham Forest’s record between 1977 and 1978.

Speaking to reporters [via BBC Sport], Werner spoke of his admiration for the current side’s success but called on fans to enjoy it while it lasts.

He said: “I keep telling everyone to really savour this, the record that we’ve kept so far – I don’t think it’s going to come along again so quickly.

“We haven’t accomplished anything yet but at the same time everybody, not just Liverpool fans, can appreciate the brand of football that’s on display.

“As a supporter this has been a dream season so far, every weekend we seem to find a different star to laud… we’ll have time to enjoy this even more at the end of the season.

“The level of competition in this league is so great eventually you think you are going to have an off day.

 

 

“But that hasn’t happened yet, which is a great compliment to Jurgen because obviously, the team is playing at peak talent every week.

“As Jurgen said, we haven’t done the job. We haven’t accomplished anything yet. There will be time to enjoy this even more at the end of the season.”

Liverpool’s players are currently enjoying time off as part of the Premier League’s winter break but are back in action next weekend with a clash against bottom side Norwich City.

The Reds need six wins from their final 13 games to clinch the title and should the feat be achieved, the players will reportedly be eligible for a share of a £4m bonus.

According to the Daily Mail, each player’s share will be based on their number of appearances in the top flight.
