Klopp pays tribute to Hillsborough families

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has paid tribute to the families of the 96 football fans who died in the Hillsborough disaster.

Klopp was speaking a day after an inquest concluded that the people who lost their lives on April 15, 1989, were “unlawfully killed” and that the police had made “catastrophic” errors.

South Yorkshire Police chief constable David Crompton has since been suspended from his role.

It was the culmination of a long battle for the families of those who died, and Klopp commended them for never giving up hope and demanding justice.

“It was a very big moment for all the families and I am really pleased for them,” Klopp said.
“I am very happy for them that finally they got the justice they wanted.

“27 years is an unbelievably long time but it shows all of us if you feel ready to fight for the truth and are patient enough to wait for the moment, then it can happen.

“I am really pleased for all of them – it was a great, great moment.”
