It’s a familiar sight for Liverpool fans when the Reds win. Three points for Jurgen Klopp’s men is usually accompanied by a tweet from Samuel L Jackson celebrating the victory.
The Pulp Fiction, Die Hard and Snakes on a Plane star is well known as a big red – but not everyone knows the reason why.
The Hollywood A lister was asked why he supports the Reds on Twitter today, and he explained that it is simply because they are his first love when it comes to ‘soccer’.
Jackson filmed the movie 51st State in the city and his first proper football match was at Anfield.
That’s all there is to it. Jackson fell in love with the Reds and has been ever since. He also has great affection for the city, telling Radio One last year that he had a ‘great time’ visiting Merseyside.
So there you have it.
