The Premier League says it will support a trophy presentation for Liverpool if they are crowned champions and it is safe to do so.
Jurgen Klopp’s side only need two more wins to clinch their first top-flight title in 30 years should the domestic season get back underway after it was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Premier League’s chief executive Richard Masters has confirmed he will support plans for a presentation should the social and public health situation allow it.
“If at all possible, yes, you’d like to have a trophy presentation,” Masters said on Monday.
“You want to give those players and the whole staff the moment they worked so hard for, if that’s what happens. Yes, we would try and do it, unless it wasn’t possible because of safety concerns.”
On Monday, Premier League clubs have unanimously voted in favour of resuming training in small groups from Tuesday in a significant stepping stone for season resumption in England.
With all 20 clubs keen to resume the season when deemed safe to do so, a return to top-flight football in June could potentially be edging closer.
