Jurgen Klopp has demanded a performance against Leicester – but not from the players (though, we expect he has demanded it from them too!)
Alas, he was talking to the fans when he made his comments earlier today.
There will be 8,500 more people in Anfield compared to last season as the new Main Stand gets its first official public airing.
“I’d like to ask for a little bit of support,” Klopp said.
“Show your best performance and I’ll try to convince the players to bring their best performance. Then we could be a real force.
“We want to inspire our supporters with our play against the current champions. We need to be good.
“We have seen the quality of the players and with the power of our supporters it can work.” (Echo)
Klopp also explained why he made the decision to bring the squad to train in front of the new structure on Thursday night.
“I brought the players here to train because the first time you see it you can’t stop thinking about it.
“I was a bit angry and loud (during the session). It echoes in the stadium better than before!”
We just hope that the fans take Klopp’s advice and crank up the volume in the ground tomorrow. It’s vitally important that we get a win against Leicester to give us some momentum. As we move into the first busy period of the season.
After the Leicester game we go to Chelsea next week, then to Derby County the following Wednesday.
What do you think the score will be? Let us know.
