Liverpool defender Nat Phillips put in a monstrous shift against RB Leipzig last week and fans online took notice.
Loads of Reds supporters took to Twitter to share memes about the centre-half, who was seemingly willing to clear absolutely every rogue ball with his head.
It’s not a criticism of Phillips, but more of a jovial appreciation of his dedication to the cause.
SPORTbible had a chat with Phillips some time after the game to discuss these Internet memes, which he’s enjoyed, and has offered his reaction to some of the best ones – including some other fun chat.
Take a look at the video below:
“My mum saw that one and I said, ‘I’m sure you’d understand, a clean sheet’s a clean sheet!’”
