Liverpool fans have been praising England Rugby head coach Eddie Jones after stating that a match he attended involving the Reds was the best he’s ever been to.
More specifically, the Merseyside club famously fought back from a 3-0 defeat in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Barcelona to win 4-0 at Anfield and book their place in the final against Tottenham. They were victorious in Madrid and lifted their sixth European crown.
The Australian coach told talkSPORT that he attended the encounter and described the game as the “best sporting event” he’s ever attended and said that his Anfield memories will stay with him forever.
“The last football game I saw was Liverpool & Barca at Anfield.”
“The best sporting event I’ve been to.”
“Just the atmosphere… the total emotion that ground has is incredible.”

Supporters were delighted with the comments from Jones and made their feelings clear on social media.
