Arsene Wenger Arsenal

Wenger names Anfield ‘the most heated stadium in Europe.’

Arsene Wenger has hailed Anfield’s ‘special’ atmosphere, labelling it ‘the most heated stadium in Europe’.

Liverpool advanced to a second successive Champions League final with a stunning comeback win over Spanish champions Barcelona, incredibly overturning a 3-0 first-leg deficit to advance 4-3 on aggregate.

Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum both scored twice for Jurgen Klopp’s side in a game which is being described as Anfield’s greatest night, with the home crowd having created an intimidating atmosphere for their illustrious visitors.

Former Arsenal boss Wenger was full of praise for the club’s support, labelling Anfield as ‘the only place you don’t want to go’ for a European tie.

“In Europe they do well. Why? Anfield,” Wenger told beIN Sport.

“[For a] home game, this is the most heated stadium in Europe in a return game. It is the only place you don’t want to go.

“The atmosphere – everything – is special there.”
