Jürgen Klopp - Thank you, Anfield - you are special

Sport A- A A+

The Reds contest their final home game of the campaign this afternoon when Wolverhampton Wanderers visit Merseyside – and still harbour hopes of becoming Premier League champions.

The fixture comes just days after Anfield witnessed one of its greatest ever comebacks as FC Barcelona were defeated 4-0 in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals, overturning a three-goal first-leg deficit in the process.

Klopp wrote in his column in the official matchday programme: “It is not possible to ignore the impact of Tuesday night, but I think it is on us – again all of us, not just the players – to make sure we take it and use it as an advantage. It was a physically and emotionally intense occasion. Of course, this affects human beings.


“The physical effects are that we have a few more players with bumps and bruises. At the time of writing these notes I’m not entirely sure who will be available to pick for certain today. But the emotional and mental effects must also be managed.

“This is why I think the togetherness between supporters and players is going to be at its most important. The fans are our energy source and it is a cast-iron certainty that there’ll be moments today when we need them. It is so important we only worry about our team and what is happening at Anfield.

“Thank you, Anfield – you are special.”
