Jurgen Klopp has shown his class in taking time to praise AC Milan star Simon Kjaer.

In his pre-match programme notes, as cited by the Mirror, Klopp chose to talk about Milan star Kjaer following the defender’s heroic actions to help save the life of teammate Christian Eriksen following his collapse during a game at Euro 2020.

Liverpool go up against Milan at Anfield this evening in the first of their Champions League fixtures this season.

“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.

Though, as tempting as it is to talk about the tie and the narratives around it given the previous meetings between these two sides in Champions League finals of year previous, Liverpool boss Klopp has set his thoughts aside for one Milan player in particular.

“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.

But Simon shone that traumatic day for his own conduct.”
