Jurgen Klopp is revered by Liverpool fans and his connection with the city and fans globally is unlike anything I’ve seen before.
The Reds are competing fiercely on three fronts almost two thirds into April and have already won the Carabao Cup this season.
An FA Cup final, a Champions League semi-final and an intense Premier League title run-in with Manchester City are on the cards for Klopp and his players and the mood around the camp is sensational.
After Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-2 at Wembley to advance to the final where they will face Chelsea, Klopp admitted he only didn’t do his customary fist pumps after the win.
He told his post-match press conference: “Millie told me I have to do it.
“I actually wanted to go but Millie looked at me and said, ‘You have to.’
“So I did it because of Millie.”
The reaction from the travelling Kop was spine-tingling.

Liverpool are charging towards an historic end to the 2021/22 season and while it’s still unlikely they will complete the quadruple, it’s clear they are set to achieve something special.
The camaraderie within the squad despite the intense battle for starting spots is quite impressive and that’s largely owed to Klopp and his coaching staff for fostering the unity among the players.
Especially those like Kostas Tsimikas and Ibrahima Konate, who haven’t played as much as they deserve to because of the form of the likes of Joel Matip and Andy Robertson.
