“These people have followed us all over Europe, come to Anfield every week, create atmospheres which are absolutely exceptional and we all know how big their desire is to come back on the winning track.
“They have had such a big part of that in the season so far, so I really think if they wanted to see me then they can see me, that’s no problem.
