If The Premier League opts to stick to home grounds rather than neutral venues, fans will definitely come to celebrate a Reds crown at Anfield and Jason McAteer – former Liverpool star claims that he is worried about fans meeting.
Where and how to start is the subject of the debate and the conversation with a major talk issue is neutral places.
German model will be adopted by England by competing at home stadiums, Brighton CEO Paul Barber expressed his resistance to the ‘Plan Restart’ initiative of the Premier League.
McAteer advised a return to play at stadiums like Anfield might contribute to large crowds as Barber went on to discuss what would make neutral sites better than playing on home fields.
McAteer told, “If Liverpool had won the league in Anfield with no one within, 30,000 or so people would have appeared outside the ground to celebrate, and at the time we weren’t all aware of how bad this situation was.”
“Thirty years everybody has been hoping for this day, everybody was on a high and no one wanted to skip it all. A ton of people must have gone out in the streets to celebrate.”
“While we are already all the most informed about the virus, something may also happen. But one way to mitigate this problem will be to schedule games in friendly venues, which I can get behind.”
“From a Liverpool viewpoint, fans would congregate if they were to start their games at Anfield and take the trophy over there. Police will not be willing to. We can’t lose that from a protection point of view.”
“McAteer agreed that such measures are important, but added that he wishes that as little improvements as possible can be produced.”
