Before Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Athletic Bilbao on Saturday, the Aviva Stadium served up a stirring rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone.
Trips to Hong Kong, Berlin and Munich this summer highlighted the passion of Liverpool’s supporters around the globe.
But closer to home, their backing is just as impressive, as an excellent You’ll Never Walk Alone before kickoff at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Saturday evening proved.
“When we came to the stadium, when we drove through the city, when we arrived at the hotel already, that was really, really special today,” he said.
“I heard about it, that Dublin is quite an LFC city but now I know it and it’s completely different to feel it.
“I thought it makes absolute sense that we try to give a little bit back [after the game].
“When we left the hotel today for the game there were 500 people minimum, but if you give one autograph then it disappoints the 499 because we don’t have time, so that’s difficult.
“Today we tried to spread it a little bit. Hopefully we can make a lot of these fans happy, because they made us happy.
“Before the game it was outstanding, during the game it was outstanding, after the game it was special.
“So really, thank you Dublin, that was a really special experience.”
