Liverpool's new Main Stand appears to have a few problems

Football News

Liverpool have finally completed their transformation of Anfield's Main Stand ahead of their first home match of the season against Leicester.

The new stand will hold 20,500 supporters and take the overall capacity of the stadium beyond 54,000. It certainly looks an impressive structure and it’s hardly surprising that everyone associated with the club are pretty excited about it.

But that doesn’t mean that everything is perfect with the new stand.

Some pictures are going viral showing two seats in particular.

One of them has a massive pole above their heads which means they will have to crouch whilst watching their beloved side.

Meanwhile, another seat has several poles obstructing its view of one of the goals on the pitch.

Check out the images below:

Many people have taken to Twitter to mock Liverpool for these awful seats.

However, many people claim that these seats are available for £9 and are only a temporary measure before the poles in question are finally removed.

We can’t confirm the truth but surely Liverpool have got the situation under control and these terrible seats will surely be sorted out sooner, rather than later.

Klopp on the Main Stand

Saturday will see the grand opening of the Main Stand as Liverpool take on Leicester in the evening kick-off and manager Jurgen Klopp is very excited about the new-look Anfield.

"After a four-month break, it's the first game for all of us at home in our, if you want, living room. I've been waiting so long for it. Everything else is different, not the same importance, it's all about playing football here,” he said.

"Even in the season we've had to wait five weeks. Now we start.

"Now we have to full it with life, inspire the people, they have to feel comfortable here and really good in this stadium. They need to enjoy our games, that's what we have to do. We can show it to more people, that's good."
