Jurgen Klopp has praised Simon Kjaer for his 'leadership in crisis' which helped save the life of Denmark team-mate Christian Eriksen earlier this summer.

Eriksen collapsed early in a Euro 2020 game against Finland back in June, with the AC Milan star quickly on the scene to prevent the midfielder's airways from becoming obstructed as well as immediately calling for medical services.

Kjaer could now feature at Anfield for Milan's opening Champions League game against Liverpool on Wednesday and the Reds boss was keen to use programme notes to extend his praise to the 32-year-old's heroic actions.

'This evening it is possible that Simon Kjaer will line up against us and this is a person who I think has the respect of the entire football and sporting world.

Klopp also praised Kjaer's team-mates for their compassion and humanity in shielding the traumatic event as best as they could by huddling around Eriksen.

Reds captain Jordan Henderson also shared his manager's sentiments in welcoming Kjaer to Anfield, admitting he was left impressed with how the Dane conducted himself during the ordeal.

'I'd like to welcome AC Milan's Simon Kjaer to Anfield this evening.
