Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists that he will not celebrate his side's 2019-20 campaign until the Premier League title is wrapped up.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he will not celebrate until the Premier League title is officially secured.

The Reds appeared well on course for their first England league crown since 1990 before football was suspended due to the coronavirus, boasting a 25-point lead over closest challengers Manchester City.

Should play continue then Liverpool would need just six more points to clinch the title, but with the fate of the 2019-20 campaign still up in the air Klopp has insisted that he is in no mood to celebrate just yet.

"We would not celebrate early - I wouldn't have the job I have if I were the person who celebrates the first party," Klopp said in a statement to fans.

"If our fans didn't celebrate this season then that would be crazy. They can fly, that is absolutely ok - it's just not for us. My life is not about enjoying the moment. But hopefully there will be a moment when we can celebrate things.

"People shouldn't celebrate one day after it is decided, why should that be? They can enjoy what we have done, that is clear. We have to entertain the people. A lot of time they are disappointed with what we are doing, now they are fine with it and it should carry them through the week."

Liverpool have dropped just five points from their 29 games so far this season and are on course to set a new record points tally.
