Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin has revealed that Anfield remains a special place for him despite his short lived Liverpool career.
Sahin joined the Reds on a six-month loan from Real Madrid in 2012 but he did not enjoy a successful spell after falling out with former manager Brendan Rodgers.
The Turkish international midfielder complained about being played out of position and openly stated he had issues with the coach but always maintained his love for the club.
Sahin posted a picture on Instagram from inside the Liverpool stadium under a sign that read: ‘This is Anfield.’
In an interesting turn of events Sahin ended up returning to Dortmund where Jurgen Klopp who first discovered him prior to his Real Madrid move welcomed him back.
Klopp criticised Rodgers for playing Sahin out of position and eventually ended up replacing him as Liverpool manager mid-way through the first half of the season.
Sahin is expected to feature of Dortmund tonight and has been included in the match day squad. The midfielder could be joined by Germany international of Turkish origin Ilkay Gundogan who has returned from injury.
