Barnes reveals why players love Liverpool & jokes about Edgar Davids (VIDEO)

John Barnes has rhapsodised about the city of Liverpool and revealed, at the Hotels.com UEFA Champions League Retreat, just why players who move to Merseyside never want to leave.

Citing the welcoming nature of its inhabitants, Barnes spoke warmly of the city and that being associated with Liverpool has been “immeasureable” to him and his family.

Barnes also referenced the fact that Rafa Benitez – standing next to him – still has a house on Merseyside, and that a lot of players feel so comfortable in Liverpool they end up staying on.

So much so, that Barnes also suggested Edgar Davids (also present at the press event) wouldn’t want to leave Liverpool if he went, and that he would love it up there!
