On Thursday night, football lovers across the world witnessed a spectacle at Anfield as Liverpool stunned Borussia Dortmund. A total of seven goals were scored as the Reds progressed to the semi-finals of the Europa League.
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp should be commended for instilling belief in the Merseyside giants. Being 3-1 down against a team of Dortmund's calibre, with so many star players, would be enough reason for any team in the world to surrender, but Klopp's men didn't.
The German tactician had a point to prove against his former employers, as well as his current bosses. The result showed that his appointment as the manager of one of the most successful teams in the history of European football is no fluke at all.
Liverpool has, in recent years, become just another team, there to add numbers in the Premier League, with nothing to show for and failing to live up to their name, but the arrival of the 48-year-old has proved fruitful as the team has gone 12 matches unbeaten in the Europa League, something no other team has achieved.
The players seem to have found a new lease of life under him. They also deserve to be praised for their never-say-die attitude on the night. They believed until the very last, and, should they continue to wear their hearts on their sleeves throughout, we might see Liverpool going back to their best next season in the Premier League.
This result reminded me of the great comeback against AC Milan in the Champions League final in 2005, when Liverpool were 3-0 down at halftime, but managed to score three goals and went on to win the trophy on penalties.
A job well done to Klopp and his troops; the Liverpool of the 20th century shall rise again… You Will Never Walk Alone!
