Jurgen Klopp has said that he hopes fans at Anfield give his predecessor Brendan Rodgers a warm welcome on Saturday afternoon.
From my perspective, the Northern Irishman is respected by Liverpool fans, even if the last months of his reign on Merseyside didn’t go to plan.
Before Klopp, Rodgers took us closer to the Premier League title than we had been for years – and that kind of stuff lives long in the memory.
I’m sure the Leicester City boss will be given a warm welcome at Anfield this weekend, and that’s certainly what Klopp is hoping for.
“I hope from the fans the reception will be OK. From my side it’s fine. All the issues from a couple of years ago, when we started living in his house, are sorted,” the German said (as per TEAMtalk).
The Foxes have been in incredible form since appointing the former Liverpool manager, and long may that continue (except when they play us!).
Leicester sit third in the Premier League table, and perhaps pose the biggest threat to our 100% record thus far – one thing is for sure, they won’t be pushovers at Anfield.
Luckily, we are at home for the fixture as the Reds have looked somewhat lacklustre in their last few outings. Hopefully the Anfield faithful can rally the lads to victory.
