Klopp paying tribute to Arsenal
Jurgen Klopp has applauded and thanked the Arsenal fans for a minute’s silence ahead of match in Anfield. Supporters at Anfield paid their respects to all the people who lost their lives due to the Hillsborough disaster, which took place in Sheffield 34 years ago. He said;
“First and foremost, you’re right it was probably the most respectful minute of silence I have ever witnessed, last week. There was absolutely no noise apart from a little baby, and that was absolutely fine. That you could hear the baby showed how silent it was.”
Later in the day when Aftv were taking their interviews Klopp took a minute to speak with Liverpool fans. Aftv then went to get his interview. They asked him whether Arsenal could go all the way. His answer was simple, he said Arsenal is the best team in the league and has everything in their locker to go all the way.
