Jurgen Klopp has spent hours cumulatively asking Anfield to be as noisy as it can be every time Liverpool step onto the pitch.
He’s begged the crowd to provide noise, energy and inspiration to his players.
Early on in his tenure, he criticised supporters for leaving early, but for the first time since, fans flooded out of Anfield on Saturday as Liverpool crashed out of the FA Cup to a second-string Wolves XI.
It was an embarrassing performance that didn’t feature a single shot on target until the 60th minute.
Klopp didn’t blame fans for leaving and actually agreed that it was so bad, he’d have left himself.
Liverpool’s boss told the Echo: “I’m not worried about it. I cannot be new every day. I would have left – it was a bad game. It’s not that I think people have to stay and accept everything. It was not good enough. It was a deserved win for Wolverhampton. But to make a general thing of it?
“I take it as a game, unfortunately it’s three games now, but I take it as a game and not more.
“I know we need positive energy for the next games and it’s still deserved because the main part of the season was still really, really good. Only nobody can remember any more.”
Klopp’s right. The first half of this campaign definitely means Anfield should be fully behind the players against Premier League favourites Chelsea on Tuesday evening.
Hopefully, with it being an evening kick-off and a crunch encounter, the stadium will be rocking – as versus Swansea, Southampton and Wolves – it was timid at best.
