Klopp's Reds entertained the 2,000 Anfield crowd with their biggest Premier League win of the season against Wolves


Jurgen Klopp was happy to see the return of Liverpool fans, saying it was a ‘wonderful, wonderful’ sign that things are returning to the norm.


It was the first time Klopp’s Liverpool played in front of their fans since the COVID-19 outbreak in March and they entertained with a superb display as they scored four goals against Wolverhampton.


Goals from Mohamed Salah, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Joel Matip, as well as an own-goal from Nelson Semedo, moved the Merseyside club back to second spot in the Premier League table [level on 24 points with leaders Tottenham].


After the game, the Liverpool manager Klopp said: ‘After 10 months without that it’s just a wonderful, wonderful sign. It’s a little bit like the news that the smart people who invented a vaccine.


‘Ok we get it in a few months but we know “oh it’s ready” so we can start doing things. These are signs.


‘Having people in the stadium is another really good sign. Hopefully, everything goes well and we can build on that as a society, not only a football society.



‘We're hopeful for four, five, six thousand in the future. Normality's coming back and we have to appreciate that even more.’


The German added: ‘Getting out of the dressing room for warming up was a proper goosebumps moment. Really, emotional. During the game emotional, it was outstanding. So nice to hear You’ll Never Walk Alone again. Whatever the weather was like outside, it was sunshine inside the stadium.


‘I had no idea how it would feel. It was perfect. The noise, what the people did, they were on their toes you could see and feel and smell. They had waited so long for it. It is so much more enjoyable with the people involved.


‘If my players and the medical team tell me nobody is injured, it was a perfect night.’
