Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has claimed ​Champions League nights at Anfield eclipse any other atmosphere in world football.

Jürgen Klopp Claims Champions League Atmosphere at Anfield Is the Best in the World

Magical evenings such as the Reds remarkable 4-0 comeback win against Barcelona in last seasons semi-final have clearly left their mark on the German.
Klopp has now admitted that the Anfield chorus on big European occasions even outweighs the noise produced by the infamous wall of his former club, Borussia Dortmund. 
"They are probably the best in world football," Klopp told FIFAs official ​website. "European nights at Anfield (is what Liverpool do better than anyone else).
"I worked at ​Dortmund and it was absolutely great, outstanding, but one or two performances at Liverpool brought the whole community together and were really special."
The Reds head coach has hinted that the 12th man often play an integral part in spurring his side on and the players react to the feverish atmosphere of European home games. 
Klopp added that not only does the crowd inspire Liverpool but home fans also provide an intimidating backdrop that tests even the most hardened of visiting sides.
"When the team is on fire then we have an atmosphere that’s difficult [for opponents]," he revealed. "Probably there we are better than the rest of the world."
​Liverpool are next in European action when they welcome the visit of Napoli on Wednesday 27 November.
The Reds lost 2-0 to the Italians in their opening game of this seasons Champions League and no doubt Anfield will be in full voice as Klopps side look to avenge the defeat.
