Liverpool president Tom Werner makes the parade to fans as the Reds approach their return to the Premier League

Tom Werner says the club will hold a major trophy parade, if certain, if Liverpool win the Premier League title.

President Reds was in town last year when hundreds of thousands of supporters welcomed their heroes home after raising the Champions League and the FSG chief says he wants to rehearse such scenes once again.

However, with large gatherings currently unable to take place in the UK due to coronavirus, Werner says these plans will only take shape when they are medically safe.

Having won 27 of their 29 games so far, Jurgen Klopp’s team have been just six points away from a first league since 1990 but have not been able to play since mid-March due to the suspension of football.

With the top clubs returning to training, Klopp’s team returned to Melwood earlier this week for their first sessions since they voluntarily stopped operations at their base on Friday 13 March.

An official date has not been set for the resumption of football but with Liverpool having an advantage of 25 points at the top, for the crown of league n. 19 only need two wins in the last nine games.

Liverpool had apparently begun discussions with the local council to hold a trophy-winning parade on Monday May 18, some time before the suspension of the Premier League action over two months ago.

But with mass meetings banned by the government for the foreseeable future, it’s unclear when the Reds team will be able to celebrate an impending title triumph with their supporters.

About 750,000 fans skirted the streets of the city after the Reds secured the sixth European Cup almost 12 months ago and President Werner hinted that the club would still be ready for another parade when it was able.

“Hopefully at some point, people will be able to sit next to each other and enjoy the experience of a sporting event,” Werner told Associated Press. “But at the moment it seems very far.

“I thought I could never imagine experiencing something like this [Champions League parade]. Then someone said, “Well, if we win the Premier League, this parade will be reduced.”

“So, I can’t wait for a parade when we can all get together because I know how important this is for all our supporters.”

The Premier League continues to discuss plans for its return with reports suggesting that a mid-June return is about to become official.

Discussions remain about where matches will be played with neutral venues, although Richard Masters, CEO of the Premier League, suggested earlier this month that all 20 teams would prefer to end the season on traditional home and away pitches.

However, the 92 final games of the 2019/20 campaign will end behind closed doors, wherever the games are played.
