Jurgen Klopp has asked for an atmosphere he has not yet experienced as Liverpool manager when they face Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night.
The German wants the Liverpool fans to play their part, suggesting that the crowd could give them a bigger advantage than the away goal they scored in Dortmund last week when they drew 1-1.
Asked what he expected from the fans, Klopp said: “Hopefully something I have never had until now!
“We had wonderful atmospheres, but best for sure was Man United. This is the level we have to jump over.
“I don’t like atmospheres when they don’t get into the game. We have to do our job and be part of the atmosphere, show that we know what it is about. The crowd is more of an advantage than the away goal.”
Klopp also spoke about the improvements in his Liverpool side since Christmas, saying: “We know each other better. We know how we work. Together, we’ve developed a belief on the pitch which has helped.
“We’re in a better position now than six months ago. A large part is down to the consistency.
“A lot of teams would rather have played us four months ago than now! We’re in with a good chance tomorrow, and we have the ability and quality to reach the semi finals.
“There aren’t that many chances to win titles. Pressure does not come into it.”
