Barcelona’s newest superstar Antoine Griezmann, who signed for the Catalans from Atletico Madrid this summer, says Liverpool are the team he supports in the Premier League – for one reason.
The French forward says he loves the supporters of Liverpool, though he would not want to move away from LaLiga because he likes the weather in Spain too much.
On a move to the Premier League, the Barca forward told Sky Sports: “It almost happened once. But we have something the Premier League doesn’t: the sun.”
Griezmann picked out his friend Alexandre Lacazette as his favourite player in the Premier League – but the Reds are his chosen side.
He added: “In terms of teams, I admire Liverpool because of the fans. Hopefully one day they will win the league again.”
Barcelona fans are not exactly the biggest supporters of the Reds after what we did to them last season. Reds fans can enjoy Griezmann’s comments, though.
If he ever changes his mind about a move to England, we’d welcome him with open arms!
