'This is Anfield' sign in the Liverpool locker room tunnel

Jurgen Klopp is one of the most peculiar types in the world of football. His energetic celebrations and his sense of humor in a press conference does not usually go unnoticed. However, when he puts on, he is also a serious person. As three years ago, when, just a year after arriving at the Liverpool bench, he banned his players from touching the mythical ‘This is Anfield’ poster .

An iconic element in one of the most famous tunnels in the world of football . “I have told my players not to touch it until they won something. It is a sign of respect . I touched it when I was coach of Borussia de Dortmund and we lost 4-0,” said the German in 2016.

Now, after winning the last Champions League , that ban has gone to a better life, as recognized by a member of the network team . Wijnaldum has shared it on his social networks: “The boss wouldn’t let us touch him until we won a trophy … now is the time .”

According to the English press, only the Dutch and Henderson, captain of the team , played the legendary Anfield poster in the debut of the team in the new season of the Premier League, which began with victory for Liverpool against Norwich.
