“I have great memories and I remember all of the fans. They are fanatic about Liverpool. The stadium we played at was a 100,000-seater. The memories from over there are good. It was a great atmosphere.
That type of support is always going to leave an impression. I’ll never forget when we went over there and what happened. With these pre-season tours, it’s always good to get back over there and play.”
