Liverpool fans should give a warm welcome to former manager Rafa Benitez, manager Jurgen Klopp says.
The Spaniard will be making his return to Anfield as he continues to fight to avoid relegation with Newcastle United.
And the German is "absolutely okay" with Liverpool fans being louder than usual to welcome their former manager.
"I know him, I like Rafa," Klopp said.
"We met each other a few times at UEFA meetings, he is a very successful manager, nice person, and I really like him.
"From my point of view, if somebody wants to celebrate Rafa Benitez and memories of the Istanbul game or whatever - [he's] one of the most successful managers at Liverpool - they're very welcome.
"If they want [to], do it.
"Be louder than you have ever been, that's absolutely okay. That's how I would say hello to a good old friend, so if you want to do this nobody has to ignore this wonderful moment only because I'm here now.
"Everything is okay from my side so do how you feel, and if it's very good, show it."
