The chance to hear the Liverpool faithful sing You’ll Never Walk Alone at Anfield for the first time is a moment that every Red will remember for the rest of his life.
It is a special moment and a reminder to the player of not only what a famous club this is but also what an honour it is to wear that Liverpool shirt.
Midfielder Marko Grujic has reflected on his experience of the club’s anthem and how the atmosphere exceeded his high expectations.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: “The feeling is 10 times better.”
“I know the fans try to be better and better from game to game. I know they are our 12th player. They give us a special force and push us forward. It’s important for every player on the pitch.”
“I watched many videos of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ on YouTube, but this was the first time I felt it [in person]. I was very impressed – goosebumps.”
Having seen the 20-year-old’s priceless reaction to Jordan Henderson’s stunning strike against Chelsea, we imagine his face was quite a picture when we witnessed Reds supporters in full voice for the first time.
The Liverpool atmosphere is part of the club’s history and something that lives on today, which is why is comes as a surprise when Anfield isn’t perhaps as loud as it is expected to be.
Things have changed of late, though, with the team’s explosive performances fuelling Anfield’s gradual return to being a fortress.
Get used to it, Marko. At this rate, it’s only going to get louder.
