Premier League chief executive plans to allow Liverpool title presentation if it is safe to do so

A 20,000-strong turnout of Reds fans it definitely won’t be should Liverpool clinch their long-awaited title and coveted trophy but at the least it seems that there could still be the likelihood of a trophy presentation to celebrate their momentous triumph.

This latest news comes direct from Premier League chief executive Richard Masters who has suggested that Liverpool will be given a trophy presentation ‘if at all possible’ despite fans being unable to watch inside the eventual stadium for the event.

Liverpool require only a maximum of six points from their remaining eight games to be crowned champions for the first time since 1990.

Premier League clubs conducted coronavirus protocols testing over the weekend and have been given the go-ahead to conduct group training sessions on Tuesday, despite concerns still hovering over social distancing measures and the effect playing matches will have on the spread of coronavirus.

Nevertheless, Masters is determined that the Premier League winners should be rewarded with a ceremony, no less.

When asked whether there would be a presentation, Masters said:

“If at all possible, yes. We would like to have a trophy presentation to give the players and staff the moment they have worked so hard for.

“We would try and do it unless it wasn’t possible because of safety concerns.”
