Another strange claim made about Anfield Stadium

Timothy Aiyeku



A lot has been said in the past about the Anfield Stadium, the home ground of the English Premier League giants because of the crowd and the passion by the fans for their team. This time around Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has given his own reaction on the Merseyside stadium.

Ahead of their Champions League clash against Liverpool, Arjen Robben stated that the Anfield is the worst place to be when he noted that he has a favourite opponent and also a negative one.

There is no doubt that Arjen Robben is speaking from the experiences he has had in the past with the stadium which propelled him to make such claim as he fears the same could happen again.

It would be recalled that Arjen Robben had two of his Champions League hopes dashed at the Anfield when he was with Chelsea in 2005 and also in 2017. The Holland international had his penalty saved in the latter by Pepe Reina which stopped them from reaching the finals.

However, Arjen Robben thinks the Reds team is much better under manager Jurgen Klopp which speaks volumes of what they should expect in coming days despite having him doubt for the game.
