Liverpool trolled by Everton legends ahead of Real Madrid showdown

Liverpool have been expertly trolled by Everton legends ahead of their Champions League showdown against Real Madrid this Saturday.

The Reds are travelling to Paris to take on the Spanish giants at the Stade de France as they look to lift their third trophy of the season having already won the FA Cup and Carabao Cup. Victory in the Champions League would make this a historic season for Jurgen Klopp, who could lift his second in four seasons.

However, it might be no surprise to see Everton fans with Spain flags in their Twitter handles over the next 24 hours or so – and a handful of Toffees legends have made their allegiances quite clear.

Peter Reid, Michael Ball, Kevin Campbell, and Alan Stubbs have all nailed their colours to Madrid's mast in spectacular style, in conjunction with Paddy Power. Reid, in full bull-fighting clobber, professed his love for the capital of Spain, insisting that it is "in his blood".

"When you’re a Madridista, you’re more than just a football fan, you’re totally immersed in the culture," the Huyton-born former midfielder said. But it not just the traditional sports of Spain that have caught the imagination, with Ball chowing down on a bowl of paella – doused in brown sauce, of course.

When asked whether or not his love of Real Madrid stems from this weekend's finale, the Everton icon got his European nations in a bit of a muddle after replying: "Excusez-moi?"

Campbell, who scored in the last Merseyside derby that Everton won at Anfield back in 1999 prior to 2021, said: "I don't know much about Liverpool. But I've always got faith in Los Bloncos." The man behind the camera replied "it's Blancos," to which the former Toffees striker hit back: "Turn it in mate. You been on f****** Wikipedia or something?"

Stubbs, reading a copy of Madrid-based newspaper Marca enjoying a cafe con leche, admitted: "It is a great time to be a Real Madrid fan." Before Pedro Reid ended the segment simply stating: "Hala f****** Madrid."

Liverpool are gunning for their seventh Champions League title which would see them draw level with AC Milan for total won while Real Madrid are miles ahead on 13. If the Spanish champs claim victory, it would be their third English scalp on their route to victory having already beaten holders Chelsea and Manchester City.
