Celebrations are in full swing already across Liverpool strongholds such as Bangladesh and Abu Dhabi as the locals favourite football team Liverpool beat Spurs in a rather boring Champions League Final in Madrid tonight. Liverpool won the game 2-0 sparking celebrations and street parties in cities around the world.
Nyoman Komang is chairman of Indonesia’s Liverpool Supporters Club and has been supporting his beloved ‘Pool for well over two seasons now having previously supported his beloved Leicester City.
“I’m Liverpool through and through. Nobody can tell me there’s a bigger Liverpool fan than me anywhere in the world. I’ve never missed a game since I started supporting them. On TV obviously. I’ve never actually been to London.”
Yousef Abdullah is from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates so naturally he supports a football team from the North of England.
“Yes I’m a true scouser. Well done to the boys. I love Liverpool and obviously it goes without saying that I hate Manchester United.”
Of course if Hartlepool were winning Champions Leagues Yousef and half the World would be massive Hartlepool fans and hate Scunthorpe United but as somebody once said – it’s a funny old game.
Meanwhile back home FAI officials have said that security procedures at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin are to be reviewed after last season’s friendly between Liverpool and the Republic of Ireland legends. There was major crowd congestion and kick-off had to be delayed for over an hour as more than 50,000 Irish Liverpool supporters tried to get their barstools and pints through the turnstiles.
