Posted by


DANCE MUSIC PLAYS And good afternoon from Kiev, all quiet here now at one of the fan parks of the Champions League Festival,
but it won’t be that way for much longer. They’re expecting
a few thousand Liverpool fans to arrive here today
from all corners of the globe. The players will leave Liverpool shortly, they’re likely to arrive
local time about 7pm tonight. Excitement building here then, expect an
invasion of red by this time tomorrow. Is that live? No. JÜRGEN LAUGHS Go on, boys! Go on, Mo! Jordan, Jordan! Big smile. Excellent. All quiet now, but in two nights’ time over
70,000 fans will descend here on the Olympic Stadium, hoping to see
their team lift that famous trophy again. For Liverpool, they departed from
John Lennon Airport a little earlier on this afternoon,
after an 11am training session at Melwood. The squad list includes Adam Lallana, who’s
back fit and ready to go after seven weeks out. LAUGHTER Smooth face, yeah. Gini, smile. Mohamed… Hello! Now I can hold it. MUSIC PLAYS ♫ We are loyal supporters,
and we come from Liverpool! ♫ Allez, allez, allez ♫ Allez, allez, allez… ♫ Been over to Krakow for two days.
Booked our flights, what, a month ago? Got them dead cheap, went to Krakow
two nights, unbelievable, got here today dead early,
five o’clock on the button. Makes it into a holiday! Can’t beat this, getting here with your
mates, singing, having great nights. Athens was the disappointment,
we’re gonna smash it here though. Dreams come true, don’t they?
We’re gonna go and win it. ♫ We shall not, we shall not be moved ♫ Like a team that’s gonna
win the European Cup – again! ♫ We shall not be moved. ♫ ♫ Jürgen Klopp
Na-na, na-na-na-na. ♫
