MANCHESTER UNITED legend Rio Ferdinand has admitted he loves Liverpool’s famous “You’ll Never Walk Alone” anthem.
Having racked up over 500 Premier League appearances, the former defender played at Anfield on numerous occasions.
Ferdinand says the famous song always fired him up.
“I actually loved it,” Ferdinand said.
“You go there and you respect it and you appreciate it.
“It actually makes your hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
“But you go out there, ready to go out there, and be like ‘I want to shut that mob up’. That’s more how we felt.”
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard says it gets easier to play at Anfield over time.
“It’s unrivalled in a sense in terms of atmosphere on a night like this,” he said ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow tonight.
“I’m not sure Spartak Moscow will rise to it. We were used to playing that game a lot but I’m not sure they’ll rise to it, we’ll see.”
Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen says hearing the song filled him with pride when he was playing for the Reds.
“The pride of listening to your anthem, going out there and knowing the history I suppose of the club,” Owen said.
“Unbelievable Champions League nights, European nights in general. So I think it’s great pride and there’s nothing quite like a European night at Anfield.”
