Miami Heat basketball star and Liverpool shareholder, LeBron James has commented on the state of the Anfield club.
“It’s a difficult for the club right now,” he said. “Liverpool are a team in a period of transition at the moment, so I don’t know what they can achieve.
“I love football. I love to watch it, read up on it. I fell in love with it after watching it. I have a new respect for what they do, the shape they’re in. It’s just like basketball where you have to be a team first of all.
“If you see some of the plays they make out there, they’re kind of basketball plays. They cut and move, just with their feet. They’re passing with their feet while we pass with our hands, to try and set someone up for a goal.
“We try and do the same thing in basketball, where if someone is open we try and set them up for an easy basket. I definitely love the sport.”
