We haven’t exactly got a second club, but if we did, Borussia Dortmund would be it.
They homed Jurgen Klopp for seven years, share our famous song, have the best support in Europe and were an absolute credit to themselves during last year’s Europa League quarterfinal.
On that fabled night at Anfield, both sets of supporters engaged in a spine-tingling rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone before the game, the like of which has rarely been heard before.
It earned Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund FIFA’s Fan Award 2016 last night at their annual awards, but it’s this tweet from the Germans afterwards that got our attention.
Dortmund are specifically requesting that the award should be dedicated to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
