Klopp condemns homophobic chants

Jurgen Klopp has spoken out about the homophobic chants that some Liverpool fans were heard singing at Norwich loanee Bobby Gilmour last weekend.

Speaking to Paul Amann of the Kop Outs LBGT+ fan group, the Liverpool boss said: “Why you would sing a song that is against something in a football stadium? I never got that.

“I never liked it and I don’t like this. Especially in our case, we have probably the best songbook in the world. It’s easy to decide not to sing the song anymore.

“I heard it. It’s from no perspective the nicest song in the world, so it’s not necessary. It obviously makes people uncomfortable of our own fan group. For our supporters’ group and for me, that means: done, let’s go for another one.”
