Jurgen Klopp and Jordan Henderson lead Liverpool's tribute at Hillsborough Memorial 1 Sportelo

Jurgen Klopp, Jordan Henderson and Kenny Dalglish were among Liverpool officials to pay tribute to the 96 at the club’s Hillsborough Memorial in Anfield.


In remembrance of the 32nd anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy, the club and families were unable to hold a public ceremony honoring the 96 due to lockdown restrictions.

The families, who are no longer part of the Hillsborough Family Support Group after the decision to retire earlier this year, marked the sad occasion in private.


Members of the public can attend the Hillsborough Memorial outside Anfield, and the club laid flowers on Thursday to honor those who lost their lives in the disaster.


Klopp, Henderson and Dalglish all laid wreaths, and were joined by Liverpool CEO Billy Hogan with the club’s message reading
Today we stand together to remember the 96.


“They are always in our thoughts and never forgotten. YNWA – from all at LFC.”

Also in attendance were under-23 and under-18 managers Barry Lewtas and Marc Bridge-Wilkinson and their captains, Ben Woodburn and Jarell Quansah, along with female counterparts Amber Whiteley and Niamh Fahey.


The Club chaplain Bill Bygroves joined the staff and players for a minute of silence at the Hillsborough Memorial in Kirkby.


At 3.06 pm, the time Liverpool’s FA Cup semi-final was halted against Nottingham Forest in Hillsborough in 1989, 96 balloons were released at Anfield as a poignant tribute to the 96.
