Liverpool’s end-of-season parade unlikely to go ahead

Liverpool are unlikely to hold an end-of-season parade through the city centre after the last game against Wolves. If Jürgen Klopp’s side miraculously win the Premier League title, then it would go ahead, but this looks now far-fetched with the recent slip-ups against Crystal Palace, Everton, and West Ham.

Plans for end-of-season parade cancelled

Jurgen Klopp announced that he was leaving Liverpool at the end of the season in January 2024. A month later, the Reds secured the Carabao Cup triumph with a victory against Chelsea in the final. As a result, the prospect of a celebratory end-of-season parade was raised.

However, David Lynch of This is Anfield reported that the club have decided that they will not hold an end-of-season parade. Contingency plans were in place for Liverpool to host a parade, like they did after the 2019 Champions League winning season and the 2021/22 double-winning campaign. These plans have now been shelved by the club, as it looks like Liverpool will only win the Carabao Cup this season.

Earlier in the season, Klopp was asked about the potential of an end-of-season parade as a chance for the Liverpool fans to say farewell to the German manager. He said: “That’s the one part this is not so cool, that it could be seen as [a farewell], I don’t think that makes sense.”

Liverpool stumble in latter part of season

Liverpool have exited two cup competitions in the last couple of months, including the FA Cup and the Europa League. Klopp’s side lost 4-3 to Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final, before losing to Atalanta in the Europa League at the same stage a few weeks later.

The Merseyside club have also slipped up in the Premier League title race in recent weeks, dropping five points behind leaders Arsenal with three matches to play. As a result, it looks like Klopp will only win the Carabao Cup in his farewell season, meaning plans for the end-of-season parade have been scrapped altogether.
