Jurgen Klopp Finally Allowed His Players To Touch The Famous 'This Is Anfield' Sign

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.

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.

In fact, a number of players were pictured embracing the tradition before Friday night's Premier League opener against Norwich.

Liverpool went on to beat Norwich in a 4-1 thrashing and now, the 51-year-old will set his sights on the Premier League title.

Last season, they finished second to Manchester City with a staggering 97 points in an unprecedented campaign.

But will Klopp lead Liverpool to domestic glory?
