‘It would be hard to turn Liverpool down’

Sheffield United are finally back in the Premier League and their player Jack O’Connell will be especially happy to meet his boyhood club – Liverpool. He also revealed that it would be a dream come true for him to play for current European champions.

“All my family are Liverpool fans so we couldn’t wait to find out when we played Liverpool and to face them on New Year’s Day will be a special moment for me and my family. I’m a massive Liverpool fan and went to the Champions League final in Madrid – but couldn’t really enjoy the game because I ended up analysing them as opposition next season.

“Obviously I am happy at Sheffield United. I’ve just signed a new contract and I’ve never thought about leaving, but my dream as a kid was to play for Liverpool and if they ever come knocking, although unlikely, it would be hard to turn them down.”
