Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool supporters
01 Dec 2016
Liverpool 4-3 Borussia Dortmund (2015/16 UEFA Europa League quarter-finals) / 14 April 2016 Anybody who has ever been to Anfield can profess to the remarkable noise when “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, a song adopted by the Reds’ fans in the early 1960s, is sung by the home support. The tune has since travelled around the world, transcending language barriers. German giants Borussia Dortmund have adopted the anthem, and their fans joined Liverpool supporters in a chorus of solidarity ahead of their April UEFA Europa League meeting, with the Hillsborough disaster’s 27th anniversary the following day. The moving gesture put sporting rivalry aside for a few minutes.
