Liverpool fan tells talkSPORT club is ‘cursed’ after missing out on Premier League title despite 97-point haul

JINXED?

Regular Sports Bar caller ‘Kloppy’ believes there’s a spooky reason behind the Reds’ long wait for the trophy

A gutted Liverpool fan told talkSPORT he thinks his club is ‘cursed’ after their latest Premier League title failure.

The Reds ended the season on 97 points – a club record haul – and with just one defeat, yet still didn’t win the Premier League title.

Manchester City beat them to it, lifting the trophy for the second straight season and ending the campaign just one point above them in the table.

It’s the latest all-so-near from Liverpool, who have now finished runners-up four times in their quest to end their long wait to be league champions – which is now at 29 years.

And regular Sports Bar caller and Reds fan Stephen, aka ‘Kloppy’, believes there’s a spooky reason why his beloved club can’t seem to end their rut.

(Apart from not being as good as the winners?)


Speaking to Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy on Monday night, Kloppy said: “In the last ten years, teams who have been top at Christmas normally go on to win the Premier League. The three times that hasn’t happened, it’s been Liverpool.

“I believe there’s a curse on our club.

“That’s the way I look at it. I just can’t believe we got 97 points and didn’t win the title.

Liverpool also had two players tied for the Premier League Golden Boot – Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – who, along with Arsenal’s Aubameyang, scored 22 goals

“Winning by a whisker, by one point, you have to give every respect to Manchester City.

“But I still say Liverpool are just slightly better because of the way they’ve come through.”

What do you think? Are Liverpool a cursed club, or were Man City just better this season?

After all, Pep Guardiola’s men still have the chance to become the first team in English football history to win the domestic Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup treble this season.
