To be fair…. What else was the manager going to say?
Jurgen Klopp was asked in last night’s press conference about Sevilla’s anthem, but claimed he has very little time for it in comparison with You’ll Never Walk Alone!
Echo journalist James Pearce tweeted his quote:
Klopp asked by a Spanish reporter whether he prefers YNWA or the Sevilla anthem: "100% ours. I don't understand a word of your one."

Klopp’s set to hear surely the best YNWA of the season so far tonight, as Liverpool welcome the Spaniards to Anfield for our first Champions League tie since the 2014/15 campaign.
We would have played in the competition last term, but Sevilla beat us in the 2015/16 Europa League Final, which meant we didn’t feature in Europe at all in 2016/17.
Now, we’re eating at football’s high table again and it’s imperitive we show Europe what we can do – especially after Saturday lunchtime’s humiliation at the Etihad.
Coutinho is likely to return to the side to provide added pizzazz and creativity, while Sadio Mane’s domestic suspension won’t count – meaning he should play from the left.
