Liverpool Fans Planning Explosive Welcome For Man City Ahead of Champions League Tie

Liverpool Fans Planning Explosive Welcome For Man City Ahead of Champions League Tie

Liverpool supporters are planning an explosive welcome for Manchester City ahead of the two sides meeting in the Champions League quarter-finals.

After brushing aside Porto and Basel respectively in the last-16, the two Premier League giants were pitted together in last week’s plush draw in Switzerland, with City due at Anfield for the first-leg on April 4.

But Pep Guardiola and his players will do well to actually make it inside the Reds’ iconic ground that night, if the club’s fanatical support get their way.

As originally reported in the Manchester Evening News, a poster has been circulated around social media attempting to organise fans for a “coach greeting” which would stretch a quarter of a mile from the ground.

The leaflet ambitiously declares: ‘We’re going to show them exactly what money can’t buy.

‘Bring your flares and flags. Banners and bangers. Pints and Pyro. There will be thousands of scouse voices ready to scare em back to Mancland with their tails between their legs before the match even starts.’

In recent seasons, particularly on the way to the Europa League final in 2016, Liverpool supporters created a red-hot atmosphere on the streets around Anfield on European nights, with the sky often turned red before kick-off.

We have a funny feeling that Pep and his City superstars could be on the receiving end of a never-seen-before ‘welcome’ when they head to Merseyside in a couple of weeks time.
