The Liverpool - Dortmund love-in has gone TOO FAR

The love affair between Liverpool FC and Borussia Dortmund has been sweet to watch - really it has.

United by their love of one man - the inimitable Jurgen Klopp - the two clubs have become footballing BFFs. A knock-out Europa League tie between the pair didn’t even put a dent in their friendship.

Dortmund welcomed Liverpool fans to Germany with open arms last week for the first leg.

And the Anfield faithful are rolling out the red carpet in return for tonight’s game.

We get it, it’s charming - footballing respect, two great clubs, etc.

But come on folks.

Half-and-half scarves are bad enough - this is frankly an abomination.

We hope your love lasts a lifetime, honestly we do.

But half-and-half jerseys CANNOT be permitted to catch on.
