Liverpool chairman Tom Werner says the Premier League’s return would be a morale boost for the country as he wants the title decided on the pitch rather than by default. Jurgen Klopp’s side will be confirmed as champions even if the remaining nine games are not played, but Werner thinks completing the season will be a more satisfying conclusion, providing the Government deems it safe. And while it would be impossible for Liverpool to hold a title parade in the near future, Werner promised there would be a celebration to mirror that of last year’s Champions League win when circumstances permitted should the title be secured. “If we can figure out a way to get these matches played, I think it would be good for the country,” Werner told the Associated Press. “It will be a boost for people’s morale and give them something to look forward to and a return to normality. There’s a hole in so many people’s lives. Football is central to their dreams and their hopes. ” And certainly, as regards Liverpool, we are playing magnificent football and we are just a couple of matches away from winning the trophy.
