KLOPP URGES ANFIELD FAITHFUL TO RAISE THE ROOF

Jürgen Klopp is urging the Anfield faithful to raise the roof this evening.

The Liverpool manager is expecting the traveling Salzburg fans to be extremely vocal during tonight’s Champions League tie and he’s hoping their noise can be cancelled out by the home support.


Klopp told the official Liverpool FC match-day programme: “I love that this is our home and we make it unique. I love that we have our own way. Our own atmosphere.

“I know we will need it tonight and we will need it as much as any European game we have played in this place in the past four years … we are back at home tonight after what feels like an extended time away from Anfield, but I’m certain it won’t take us long to feel like we’ve ever been away … our visitors from Austria will make loud noise constantly.

“Sadio and Naby have both spoken to me about how passionate their supporters are and told the boys they create a really inspiring atmosphere for their players. This is cool because I know in these moments Anfield responds with its best face.

“It’s a Champions League game, under the lights, and the result is really important and significant. So there is a job to do for all of us.

“Let’s do it!”
