Joe Gomez labels Liverpool fans as “the best in the world”

Joe Gomez has heralded Liverpool fans after the club's Carabao Cup final win on Sunday afternoon at Wembley Stadium. Liverpool came through the final against Chelsea despite a lengthy injury list and ended the match with three academy graduates on the pitch and Gomez has credited the fans with helping them get over the line.

Speaking to the official Liverpool website, Gomez said:

“Honestly, I'm not one for cliches but I generally think we have the best in the world. It's a credit to them, I hope they realise that and how much it means to use. We just get that boost and it helps us so much. That is one thing we are all grateful for.”

Gomez wants to savour every moment

Liverpool looked as if they were dead on their feat at the end of normal time but Chelsea's negative tactics in Extra Time allowed the Reds to come back into the match. Then, just when the game looked as if it was heading to a penalty shootout, Virgil van Dijk scored from a Kostas Tsimikas corner to win the cup for Liverpool.

After the match, Jurgen Klopp called it the “most special” trophy of his career and joined his players as they stood in front of their supporters while they serenaded them with a rendition of ‘You'll Never Walk Alone'. Speaking about the special moment, Gomez said:

“The gaffer leads us in those moments and he has the mindfulness to say, ‘Let’s enjoy this moment’ and rightly so. The fans are the reason why we do it. Not to speak in cliches but it is the truth. We have to enjoy it.

“We are still in the middle of the season and it’s not done but if we don’t savour these moments what do we do it for? To do it with the fans is another bit of history.”
