Report claims date, route for Liverpool victory parade already agreed

Date published: Monday 27th January 2020 11:34

Liverpool are already in talks over a Premier League victory parade and have reportedly agreed a route with the city council due to road closures.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are on course for a first title in 30 years and could seal it as early as April, with The Athletic claiming that talks are already underway over a celebration parade.

The report adds that Monday May 18 has been mooted as a possible date, but could be put back if Liverpool are still in the Champions League.

Liverpool will not receive the Premier League trophy until the penultimate game of the season – their final home game against Chelsea scheduled for May 9 – despite the potential for a landslide victory.

If both Liverpool and nearest rivals Manchester City continue winning then the Reds could wrap up the title on April 4, if they beat Pep Guardiola’s men at The Etihad.

The current record for earliest title triumph is April 14, when Manchester United won it way back in 2001.

The Merseysiders, who were held to a shock 2-2 draw by Shrewsbury in the FA Cup on Sunday, are currently 16 points clear with a game in hand and remain unbeaten with an incredible 22 wins from 23 games this season.

Meanwhile, Liverpool legend John Aldridge has said that a move for RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner would be a “great option” for Jurgen Klopp’s side this summer.

Werner has been in outstanding form for his Bundesliga employers this term, having scored 20 goals and six assists while appearing in every league game this season.

Such form has helped his side to cement their place at the top of the German top flight and, overall, Werner’s tally for the season stands at 25 goals in 27 appearances.

 

Various reports have indicated that Liverpool are keen on a move for the 23-year-old either in January or the summer, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United also linked.

A move for Werner this summer could coincide with a number of Anfield exits, with Adam Lallana out of contract at the end of the season and Xherdan Shaqiri heavily credited with a move away.

Writing in a column for The Independent, Aldridge predicted that Liverpool could match potential exits this summer with a move for Werner. Read more…
