Barmby relishing Anfield return

Former Liverpool player Nick Barmby is excited about returning to Anfield with Hull on Saturday. The Tigers will be making only their 7th ever trip to Anfield, after a fantastic start to the season which saw them setting the pace in the Premiership.

Barmby signed for the reds in 2001 when Houllier splashed out a whopping £6 million on the player – a controversial move as he was moving from Everton.

Speaking ahead of the weekend’s game he said:

“I loved my time at Liverpool, it’s a fantastic club.

“I was fortunate enough to win things there and it is one of the best clubs in the world. But I am more pleased for the fans to be going to places like Anfield.

“The atmosphere is fantastic there and to see their team playing against Liverpool in a league game is fantastic. Long may it continue.”

Obviously been a while since he’s been to Anfield then.
