Klopp: All Liverpool players should get a medal for winning Premier League title


Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp will make sure all members of hissquad receive a medal to celebrate Liverpool winning the Premier League, no matter how many gamesthey have playedduring the season.

Players need to have made five league appearances to get amedal and the vast majority of the Reds' first-team group have alreadyqualifiedunder the competition's criteria.

However, youngsters Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones and Neco Williams are currently under the threshold with six games remaining, potentially leaving Klopp with a dilemma over whether to give them minutes with the title already sewnup.

Yet Liverpool's German boss believes they have already done enough to deserve one fortheir efforts in training throughout the campaign - and is even willing to give his own medal away to make sure every player isrecognisedforhelping toend the club's 30-year wait to be crowned champions again.

"I'd rather they think about thefive appearancesrule again, make it happen that if you have played one game then you should have a medal," Klopp told the media.

"Five games? I’m not sure who came up with that idea. I don't think that it's a good rule because people don't understand how important the squad is to win a championship, then I cannot help the people to be honest.

"If you have no games, you shouldstillget a medal. If you're the second goalkeeper in a team and you have less games, you should get a medal.

"You train five million times over a year and if you don'ttrain atthehighest level you have no chance to win a championship.

"Someone decided youhave toplay five games to win amedal?These boys will get a medal,100 per cent.I will produce itmyself. They can have my medal.

"We have to win football games;it's not about giving appearances away here and there. They deserve a medal and they will get a medal, if not from the Premier League then from me."

The next opportunity for those on the fringes to play could come on Sunday when Liverpool take on relegation-threatened Aston Villa at Anfield.

Late goals from AndyRobertson andSadioMane secured a dramatic 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Villa Park,much to Klopp’s delight. However, it was the team's desire tokeep going until the end, rather than the three points, that pleased him the most.

"I thought it was so important because the season before showed us that wehave tobe pretty much perfect to have a chance to win the league. City usually wins all their games, which wasobviously the case the year before,"Klopp said.

"Weequalisedwith the pressure we made in that situation, butI was not too surprised. What I loved most in that game was how we took theball actually. Everybody knew, while we don’t know if we can win thegame,we should at least give it a proper try."
