Klopp Asks Liverpool Fans to Stop Signing a Homophobic Chant

Jurgen Klopp has revealed Liverpool’s zero tolerance for discrimination and he has demanded that fans refrain using a “vile chant”. So, among the football news that’s politically charged and conscientious, Klopp asks Liverpool fans to stop signing a homophobic chant.

Reds’ own fans took Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp aback by singing a vile and discriminatory song in Norwich last Saturday.

The fans were directing this song, which used derogatory and hurtful homophobic language, particularly toward on-loan Chelsea player Billy Gilmour.

However, Gilmour’s head coach stepped up to his defense, and indeed, to the defense of the entire LGBTQIA+ community everywhere.

Jurgen Klopp didn’t hold back in immediately criticizing the homophobic song. And he mince his words either, calling those behind the chant “idiots”.

What’s more, the Liverpool coach has also given out a well-meaning warning.

Jurgen Klopp has made it abundantly clear that he doesn’t want to hear such discriminatory abuse from the stands again.

“Actually, I think it’s easy – it’s easy to decide not (to) sing the song anymore,” he said claim Mirror.

“I really think it’s an easy decision and should be an easy decision,” he added.

“For our supporters’ group and for me, that means: done. So, we can decide now: this is not our song anymore. I don’t want to hear it anymore for so many reasons.”

On Thursday, Klopp met with Paul Amann, the founder of Kop Outs. Amann found this Liverpool fan group in 2016 to provide a voice for LGBT+ supporters and raise awareness around issues.

Conversing on Kop Outs, the pair discussed the long-term consequences of discriminatory chants. Amann even explained that the abuse is highly divisive among the club’s own fanbase.
