Jurgen Klopp Has Banned His Players From Touching 'This Is Anfield' Sign

Jurgen Klopp has revealed he won't let his Liverpool players touch the iconic 'This is Anfield' sign until they win a trophy.

The German manager is on cloud nine along with the rest of his squad and supporters following their incredible 4-3 win over Borussia Dortmund last night. The victory saw them come back from 3-1 down on the night to achieve a 5-4 aggregate score and grab a Europa League semi-final spot.

Klopp was speaking to the written press post-match about the game and made the revelation about the tunnel sign.

It sits above the stairs that the players walk down before then emerging on to the pitch and has regularly been touched by players and managers as a superstition over the years. But the German doesn't believe his players should be touching it until they win a trophy.

Klopp said, per Tony Barrett of The Times:

They narrowly missed out on a trophy when they lost the Capital One Cup final to Manchester City on penalties earlier in the season.

But they could still get some silverware this season as they moved a step closer to Europa League glory with last night's massive victory.
