Asked about the club calling for a minute’s silence before the match, Klopp said: “Yes, I think it’s right.
“But I don’t think our people need any advice from me on showing respect.”
“There were many examples where our men showed the proper respect,” added Klopp.
“One of the moments that surprised me and I was really proud of that moment was last year when we played Man United around the very sad situation surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s family and I look forward to that.
“It’s clear to me what we have to do. That’s all.”
Whistle of the national anthem
But why was Klopp asked if he hoped the Anfield faithful would honor the tributes requested by the club themselves?
The then British Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned those who booed.
After that match, Klopp said the booing of England’s national anthem was “not something I liked”, but also said: “It’s always better to ask the question: ‘Why is this happening?’ They wouldn’t do it without a reason.”
Fan reaction to the FA Cup final made headlines in the UK. But it happened not the first time.
Fans had the same reaction to the national anthem at the Carabao Cup final in February – and at the FA Cup final in 2012. It’s a way for some of the club’s supporters to express their opposition to the establishment, and it’s a chance to do so in front of a global audience.
After the riots, Margaret Thatcher’s government spoke of the “managed decline” of the city.
The booing of the national anthem at football matches when the team played at Wembley – which was common given Liverpool’s dominance of English football at the time – became widespread and remains so today. The reaction to this in the English media is still shocking.
Social and economic inequality is something that continues to anger many left-wingers. It is noteworthy that the fans of “Liverpool” and “Everton” started “Fans’ Supporting Foodbanks” in 2015, an initiative aimed at fighting food poverty in Great Britain.
In the same interview in May, Gibbons said: “Maybe to come to Liverpool and talk to people, visit food banks and see how some people in this city are struggling.”
According to journalist Tony Evans, in the FA Cup final in 1965, Liverpool fans began chanting “God save our team” and by the 1970s “the whistle was getting louder and louder”.
Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean fans will be booing a minute’s silence on Tuesday night in honor of Queen Elizabeth at Anfield.
