(Video) Klopp leads Liverpool in unified, hand-in-hand, ‘Kop salute’ after late equaliser

This is a sign of Jurgen Klopp’s passion, his relationship with supporters and his keenness on bringing German influences over to the Premier League.

Following the 2-2 draw with West Brom, Klopp led his team to the Kop, arm in arm, to thank the home support – probably the noisiest of the season.

Sadly they didn’t get to see a win, which Liverpool badly deserved after battering Tony Pulis’s side.

There will be an argument to suggest, of course, that celebrating a home draw with West Brom is a little embarrassing.

But the result didn’t matter to Klopp as much as the future. He loved the support and wanted to thank them. Simple as that. It’s fantastic that our manager is fighting so hard to unite players and supporters once again. And there were enough good points from today, bar the finishing, to suggest we’ll have a positive Christmas period. Borussia Dortmund used to do this under Klopp as well, and it’s abundantly clear that he entirely knows the role fans play in a successful team.
