Liverpool star Joe Gomez full of praise for the Reds fans at Wembley

Joe Gomez has lavished praise on Liverpool fans, hailing them as ‘the best in the world’ following the Reds’ remarkable Carabao Cup final triumph at Wembley, affectionately dubbed ‘Anfield South’ among the Liverpool faithful.

In a memorable clash against Chelsea on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s resilient side secured a 1-0 victory to lift the League Cup for an unprecedented 10th time. The winning goal came from none other than captain Virgil van Dijk, who headed home in extra time to seal the triumph.

What made this victory even more remarkable was the absence of the majority of our senior players due to injury, with Ryan Gravenberch also being stretchered off in the first half of the game because of a reckless challenge from Moises Caicedo. Despite the adversity, Liverpool dug deep and found a way to emerge victorious with Joey playing a crucial part in our win coming on for Gravenberch and then slotting into his natural right-back position, pushing Conor Bradley in the middle of the park.

Speaking to the club’s official website in the aftermath of the thrilling encounter, Gomez emphasized the pivotal role played by the unwavering support of the Liverpool faithful.

“Honestly, I’m not one for cliches but I generally think we have the best in the world,”

“It’s credit to them. I hope they realise that and how much it means to us. We just get that [boost] and it helps us so much. That is one thing we are all grateful for.”

Best fans in the land

Gomez’s sentiment echoes the sentiments of many players who have experienced the electrifying atmosphere generated by Liverpool supporters at Anfield and beyond, in this case Wembley. The passionate backing from the stands provides a vital source of inspiration and motivation for the players, driving them to give their all on the pitch.

Indeed, the bond between the Liverpool players and their supporters is a special and enduring one, built on a shared sense of passion, loyalty, and pride in the club’s rich history and traditions. As Gomez’s words attest, the unwavering support of the fans serves as a powerful source of strength and inspiration for the team, driving them to achieve greatness on the pitch.

As they stood on the hallowed turf of Wembley, basking in the glow of victory, Gomez and his teammates were acutely aware of the role played by the fans in their triumph. Their unwavering support had carried them through the darkest of moments, providing a beacon of hope and inspiration that guided them to glory on this unforgettable day. That Allez Allez Allez towards the end of the game had even the Chelsea players in awe.

Looking ahead, Gomez and his teammates are determined to repay the faith and loyalty of the fans with further success on the pitch. With the Premier League title race heating up and the Europa League campaign looming alongside the FA Cup, Liverpool’s journey is far from over.
