Liverpool chief Tom Werner says they are thinking about organizing a title parade in the city. 

The Merseyside club are two wins away from securing their first top flight title in 30 years. 

The season in the Premier League has been stopped since March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The league authorities, however, are willing to finish the season. 

In case the restart is not possible, Liverpool will be awarded champions, as the idea of nullifying the results is off the table. 

“There’s a hole in so many people’s lives. Football is so central to their dreams and their hopes,” he told The Associated Press.

“And certainly, as regards Liverpool, we are playing magnificent football and we are just a couple of matches away from winning the trophy. But I do put it in perspective.

“It’s a terrible situation we’re all in. Someday, hopefully, there will be a vaccine and we can return to the joy of being in a stadium and watching the elegant play of great football players.

“We hope at some point, people will be able to sit next to each other and enjoy the experience of a sporting event. But that seems like a long way off at the moment.” Werner added.
