The structure, with almost 21,000 seats, will take Anfield’s capacity to just over 54,000 and even coach Jurgen Klopp – who used to manage in front of 81,000 Borussia Dortmund supporters at the Westfalenstadion – is impressed.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for us,” the manager said.
“Tuesday was the first time since the Chelsea game [on May 11] that I’d been to Anfield.
“It’s really impressive what they have done there – an outstanding job. I have no idea how someone could do something like this.
“When you stand in front of it, it’s really amazing. This is a good place and a good opponent with the champions coming.
“This is our first home game and with 8,000 more in the stadium that’s more power and we should use this.”
