Rainbow Laces: Jurgen Klopp explains why he backs LGBTQ+ inclusion campaign

Jurgen Klopp believes he is the perfect example of how Rainbow Laces should raise awareness about inclusion. Klopp recently explained how the campaign inspired him to rally around LGBTQ+ people like her. Liverpool Women defender Meikayla Moore admitted that the support of the coach meant a lot to her and especially youngsters who love the club.

“I really love Rainbow Laces, every year when it happens,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said. “I’m a perfect example for it – how the awareness level changes from the moment you put them in. I’m 54, I’ve been through a lot of periods in my life but a lot of problems I’ve never had. I have so many gay friends but I never thought about how it was when they had to say, ‘by the way, mum, dad’ – and to everyone else – ‘I’m not exactly how you expected, maybe’. That’s a challenge we shouldn’t face, in the way we face it in our life. So I’m completely in. It’s a great campaign, I have to say, and it looks good!”

“In women’s football, I’ve been very fortunate that being LGBTQ+ is not as unusual as in the men’s game. It’s very accepted and the community is very strong,” Liverpool Women defender Meikayla Moore said. “But I think for the entirety of football, there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done, especially on the men’s side, just to make it a platform that it’s accepted and that it’s OK to be who you are and be true to yourself.”
