Former and star Giuseppe Bergomi has revealed that he is a supporter of English winners and he idolised Reds stars Kevin Keegan, Kenny Dalglish, and Ian Rush.

The Liverpudlians won their first English league title for the first time since 1989/90 and the 56-year-old reminisced about their golden era of the 1970s and 1980s, when they won four European Cups in seven years.

“I became a fan in the 1970s,” Bergomi told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Keegan was my first idol, then Dalglish and Rush.

“In addition to the triumphs of those years, also the atmosphere at Anfield made me fall in love with them. It is unique. A stadium of its equal does not exist.”

Bergomi never played against in a competitive game but nearly faced the Reds in the 1981 Final, which the English side won 1-0 against Spanish giants Real Madrid.

“No official games, only a summer friendly,” he said.

“We came close in the 1981 but we were eliminated by in the semi-finals.”
