Jürgen Klopp has delivered a message to the families, survivors and Liverpool supporters on the 31st anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

Ninety-six fans lost their lives as a result of the events that occurred at the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest on April 15, 1989.

With the planned memorial service at Anfield unable to take place today due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Klopp sent his thoughts, prayers and love to everyone affected by the tragedy.

“Today is the most significant day for our football club each year,” he said.

“The plan was that we were together at Anfield today, but this is not possible. The only thing we can make sure is that we are in each other’s thoughts. And believe me, you are in our thoughts.

“You have our thoughts, our prayers and, most of all, you have our love. You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
