Liverpool boss Klopp confirms big pre-match change at players' request

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed one big change he's granted the players for the new season.

Since taking charge at Anfield, the charismatic German had banned his players from touching the iconic 'This is Anfield' sign in the tunnel.

Klopp previously argued that his troops needed to earn the right first, but now is set to change his stand after winning the Champions League.

“The boys asked me if we will now touch the sign in the stadium, so why not? It's OK now," said Klopp.

“I'm not sure if I will do it, though, because last year we had done so well and didn't touch it. It's just good to have the licence."
