Griezmann explains why he loves Liverpool, despite signing for Barcelona

Antoine Griezmann loves Liverpool, doesn’t he?!

The Frenchman, who signed for Barcelona this summer from Atletico Madrid, has a history of supporting us on Twitter – and especially has an affinity for Roberto Firmino!

And today, the world-class forward has named us his pick for the Premier League – largely because of our incredible support.

“In terms of teams, I admire Liverpool because of the fans. Hopefully one day they will win the league again,” he told Sky Sports.

Liverpool fans have no affinity for Barcelona whatsoever, and got beautiful, clinical revenge for them poaching our best players over the years last season – demolishing them 4-0 at Anfield to confirm our spot in the Champions League Final.

On that night, Anfield was at its miraculous, raucous best and there was nothing Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez or Coutinho could do to swell the red tide.

As a result, they’ve broken the bank to secure Griezmann, Frenkie de Jong and likely Neymar – who wants to rejoin Los Cules from PSG.

Still, we’d back Jurgen Klopp’s team against anybody in Europe over two legs in 2019/20.

He’s still not lost a two-legged European tie since joining the club in October 2015.
