Liverpool’s FA Cup stars missed out on medals as Jurgen Klopp pleads for more

Jurgen Klopp has pleaded for the FA to hand out more medals after Liverpool’s FA Cup final win over Chelsea.

The Reds clinched their second trophy of the season on Saturday after beating Chelsea 6-5 on penalties at Wembley Stadium. But Liverpool manager Klopp revealed there was an issue with the number of medals his players received after their win.

The German used a staggering 31 players over the course of the competition. That meant certain stars like Takumi Minamino, Harvey Elliott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and the injured Fabinho played a role in earlier rounds but did not make the bench at Wembley.

Klopp spoke of his side’s success in their quadruple-hunt being down to their enormous depth, but noted that it meant some of Liverpool’s stars missed out on their rewards. And the manager went on to demand that the FA ends its restriction on the number of medals issued at the end of competitions.

He said: “Dear FA, please send some more medals. Everybody has his part – we had the discussion, maybe we can order here publicly more medals.

“I cannot believe that the amount of medals is restricted, why would you do that? We realised we want to give medals to all the players and they say then coaches cannot have it – what?

“It's really a bit tough. It's not a good idea – the squads are getting bigger but the numbers stay the same.”

Klopp’s side will be hoping for another chance at silverware in the Premier League with just two games left to play. They are currently four points behind league leaders Manchester City with a game in hand, meaning they have to win both of their remaining matches in order to stand a chance of clinching their second ever Premier League title.
