Liverpool fans are renowned for their brilliant homemade flags that are often unfurled on the Kop during a home match at Anfield and the draw against Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-final of the Europa League was always going to get the flag creators thinking.

Jurgen Klopp is returning to the club that he managed for seven years, leading them to two Bundesliga titles and a Champions League final.

So, a brand new Klopp banner just had to be made. But which famous quote would be plastered across the tribute?

Actually, it just needed one word: “Boom.”

If you’re a little confused, let us remind you.

Klopp's interview

After Liverpool had just thrashed Manchester City 3-0 at the beginning of March, Klopp was trying to describe the match in his post-match interview on BT Sport.

“The best word I can say to describe this is…BOOM.” he said while looking straight down the camera, before cracking into laughter.

If you haven’t seen the interview yet, watch the hilarious clip below.

“Boom” is now a word very much associated with Klopp so it was no surprise to see it on the new banner of his face. Below Klopp’s face are five golden stars to remind everyone that the club have won five European Cups in their history.

The banner

The banner was uploaded on Instagram by Liverpool’s official account with the caption: “One of many great #LFC flags in Dortmund right now! 👏 Share your matchday pics using #LoveLFC.”

Tough tie

Klopp’s side will be hoping to leave the Westfalenstadion still in the tie. Borussia Dortmund have been impressive this season, losing just three times in the Bundesliga while brushing Tottenham aside in the previous round.

On the other hand, Liverpool will see the Europa League as their only opportunity to salvage their season. Their only realistic chance to qualify for the Champions League next season comes in the form of winning the Europa League as they are unlikely to finish in the top four in the Premier League.

It’s likely to be an emotionally charged affair in Dortmund and the atmosphere is going to be electric. Both sets of fans will partake in a rousing edition of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ before the match starts.

It will be a tough match for Liverpool to win, with some bookmakers having them as high as 5/1 to take a lead back to Merseyside.

If they do, don’t be surprised if Klopp is “booming” in his post-match interview once again.
