Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had difficulties to control his emotions after fans returned to the stadium at Anfield to witness Liverpool beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-0. It was the first time in more than eight months since fans last visited Anfield due to the coronavirus lockdown and that filled Klopp with joy. Mohamed Salah, Georginio Wijnaldum and Joel Matip scored the goals for Liverpool with Nelson Semedo scoring an own goal in the second half.
“The game, the atmosphere, it was so nice. I had goosebumps. They started ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ – really nice. I never knew it could feel that good,” Klopp told the BBC post-match, before starting to become emotional. This started in February and we were waiting to get normality back,” he continued. “Normality is good – I don’t think we appreciated it as much. It was very very touching.”
“Wasn’t it a perfect night? Whatever the weather was like outside, it was sunshine inside the stadium. There were a few challenges before the game – Wolves play different systems. I gave the boys information about how to press them. The boys were outstanding with how they dealt with them – our best result against Wolves.”
