Liverpool News & Transfers Live – Joe Gomez starts for England vs Wales, says Jack Butland
The Globe at the moment heard that Liverpool were interested
Jர்கrgen Globe has opened up about his most important moment with Liverpool in his first relationship with the club.
It’s been five years since becoming Globe Reds boss, and although he has led Liverpool to four major trophies, including the sixth European Cup and the first league title in three decades, his first phone call with that club still lives on in memory.
He said Liverpoolfc.com:
“It made everything else happen. I can’t forget the moment I got a call from my agent that Liverpool was interested. The feeling I had at that moment.
“I said it twice, I was in a holiday mood; we were in Portugal, Lisbon, with the family, the two boys were with us. Ullah and I were sitting outside at a coffee bar.
“Actually I didn’t take a lot of phone calls at the time, like: ‘Come on, don’t bother me.’ But when I saw it, I had a feeling it might be an interesting thing so I picked up the phone, he tells me, and felt the excitement inside.
“But of all the things I have said to my family before, I could not immediately say: ‘Yes! Let’s do it! ‘I had to ask:’ What is your opinion? ‘ I still remember the two boys being like that: ‘Yes!’ We look at Ullah and she looks at all three of us: ‘Oh, it looks like the holidays are over!’
“It’s a good moment to be together. Nothing was decided at that moment, I did not talk to anyone else. We flew home, Mike Gordon called me two days later, what a day later. Then I flew to New York.
“But this first moment I knew of Liverpool’s interest was already very special. From that moment on, it got better and better.”
