Jurgen Klopp Finally Allowed His Players To Touch The Famous 'This Is Anfield' Sign
Since taking over in 2016, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has instilled a never-say-die spirit at the football club.
The German manager was questioned at first for his unorthodox approach but after years of establishing his vision, he finally broke his trophy-drought by winning the Champions League trophy in June.
Liverpool's 2-0 win over Spurs meant that players can finally touch the famous 'This Is Anfield' sign before games this season.
"I've told my players not to touch the 'This Is Anfield' sign until they win something. It's a sign of respect" - Klopp.- Kloppholic (@Kloppholic) August 9, 2019
Today that finally changes...
Klopp laid down a challenge to his players at the start of his Liverpool career, saying:
"I've told my players not to touch the 'This Is Anfield' sign until they win something."It's a sign of respect. I touched it when I was manager of Borussia Dortmund, but we lost 4-0.
"I will start touching it when Liverpool have won something. This is a really big club and the history is a mountain," he added.
But Liverpool's trophy-drought under Jurgen Klopp has finally been put to rest, which means the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk can touch the famous sign.
