Graeme Souness says that Anfield has never sounded the way it does now and that there is a unique feeling inside the stadium, in comments published by the Liverpool Echo.
The Scotsman played for the Reds between 1978 and 1984 and is one of the most successful Liverpool players. He won 14 trophies at Anfield, including three European Cups.
When asked if the noise at home on Sunday was unlike what he remembers as a player, he told the Liverpool Echo: “Yes [ I can’t remember hearing a noise like it].
“When the second goal goes in, okay they are celebrating that second goal, but the feeling within the stadium, I can’t remember when I was playing here [anything like it].
“Maybe I’m doing a disservice to those supporters all those years ago… but the stadium is absolutely rocking.”
The feeling around Anfield at the moment is one of excitement but more importantly, belief. Jurgen Klopp has achieved the goal he set out for himself when he arrived in 2016.
He has transformed an insecure and damaged fanbase from doubters to believers. The win over Chelsea on Sunday was more than an important three points.
It banished the narrative that Steven Gerrard’s slip in 2014 still haunts Liverpool and its fans. Instead, the Reds steamrolled the same team it lost to in that unfortunate campaign.
A Premier League or Champions League win this season would be a perfect and deserved reflection of the incredible work Klopp has done over the last three years.
It would also confirm what most already know. Liverpool are back.
