Jose Mourinho & Liverpool
In that regard, Stephen Monaghan is a Liverpool fan who is part of the Spirit of Shankly supporters’ club.
The Spirit of Shankly group are often identified by their well known symbol which includes a silouhette of Bill Shankly.
That symbol has now appeared on Mourinho’s Man United club gear, as the Liverpool fan stuck a badge on the Man United boss for a photo.
A couple of tweets are now doing the rounds claiming Mourinho is Liverpool’s newest supporter.
Jamie Carragher has also weighed into the mix on social media.
For the record, Liverpool host Man United in the Premier League at Anfield on October 14.
