In an open letter to the Liverpool Echo newspaper, Klopp wrote of his love for the fans' passion, commitment and understanding of the game as he thanked them and the city for helping the club to win the Premier League title.

Another man also appeared in court Monday on an assault charge, and police in the city said 15 other people have been bailed after being arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.

"My teammates make me feel special inside and the supporters also, everybody, but the boss has a special place in everything I think for everybody - for the club and also for the supporters because he gave his life to achieve those things that we are achieving".

"We owe it to the most vulnerable in our community, to the health workers who have given so much and whom we have applauded and to the police and local authorities who help us as a club not to do this", he added.

Police said £10,000 ($12,000) worth of damage was caused to the Liver Building, one of the city's most famous landmarks, after a firework landed on a balcony on Friday.

Klopp said fans should celebrate in a safe way in private settings to avoid spreading the disease. "We will enjoy this moment and we will paint the city red".

Talks over a merger first surfaced a year ago and Masters said there had since been "lots of dialogue" around a topic which "we will return to in the near future", once the Covid-19 crisis has eased. We want to be the best team and to be the best we can, the best version of ourselves.

"This is not the time to be in the city centre in big numbers or to go near football grounds".

"In the previous year we've had lots of dialogue with the FA and our own clubs about the Premier League in some point in the future assuming responsibility for the professional game", he said.

Following the outbreak of trouble Friday, the club, along with city hall leaders, issued a statement saying several thousand people turned up at the Pier Head and some chose to ignore the social distancing guidance and risk public safety. "The potential danger of a second peak of COVID-19 still exists", it added.
