Jurgen Klopp has paid tribute to Simon Kjaer following the defender's heroic actions at Euro 2020.

Ahead of Liverpool's Champions League opener against Milan on Wednesday night, the Liverpool boss used his pre-match column to praise the life-saving actions of both Kjaer and the medical staff involved.

Simon Kjær and the medical team that saved Christian Eriksen's life are the 2021 UEFA President's Award winners.

"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."

"Like millions of others, I was rocked by the scenes that unfolded at the European Championships in the summer when Christian Eriksen fell ill during Denmark's opening group game."

"There were many heroes that night, not least of all the remarkable medical professionals for the Danish national team, in the stadium and subsequently at the hospital. But Simon shone that traumatic day for his own conduct."

The comments made by the Liverpool boss, which were written before Liverpool's win at Leeds United on Sunday, are a true show of admiration for the heroic actions demonstrated by Kjaer and all others involved.
