Jurgen Klopp has revealed his disgust for the homophobic chanting by Liverpool fans during their first match against Norwich. Billy Gilmour was welcomed to chants of ‘Chelsea rent boy’ by a certain section of the away fans during the game. The club immediately condemned the chants on social media branding the chants as offensive and inappropriate. A similar incident had taken place during their win over Chelsea last season at Anfield.
“Why you would sing a song that is against something in a football stadium? I never got that,” Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said. “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 supporter’s group and for me, that means: done, let’s go for another one.”
“So, we can decide now: this is not our song anymore. I’m not sure if people listen to me but it would be nice. I don’t want to hear it anymore for so many reasons.” he added. “From a player or coach perspective, I can say these songs don’t help us as well. It’s like a little bit of a waste of time. It’s definitely a waste of time because we don’t listen.”
