Hollywood legend Samuel L Jackson reveals reason why he is a Liverpool fan

The Hollywood legend Samuel L Jackson has revealed the reason why he is a Liverpool supporter, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Pulp Fiction actor from the United States, told BBC Radio 1 host Nick Grimshaw that he is both fond of the city and Liverpool FC.

Samuel L Jackson went onto say that the reason he is a Liverpool fan is because his first football experience was at Anfield.

“That happened because I shot a film there and I had never been to a proper football game until I got to Liverpool,” Samuel L Jackson told radio host Nick Grimshaw.

“That was like my first football experience so that’s why particularly I am a Liverpool fan, that was my introduction to football and I spent a lot of time in the stadium singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.”

Samuel L Jackson was promoting his latest film Mrs Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, where he plays the role of Mr Barron.

Liverpool will be hoping the Hollywood star is present this weekend when they take on Swansea City in the Premier League. The Reds are on a four game winning streak and have moved up to forth place in the Premier League.

Swansea City meanwhile, have lost their last three games and are without a win in their last five.
