Another screenshot from Nabil Fekir’s interview with LFCTV from the summer has been leaked and no matter your stance on the saga, the findings are heartbreaking.
You might argue that although Nabil Fekir missed out on what was billed as his ‘dream move’ to Liverpool in the summer over injury concerns, he still enjoyed himself as he returned from Russia as a world champion.
That said, football moves quickly and his World Cup triumph with France will already be at the back of his mind as he looks forward to the next success of his career and after the drama with Liverpool, he might have regrets that he can’t look forward to these with the Reds.
For me, what makes this all the more heartbreaking is that he had conducted an interview with LFCTV under the impression that he was a Liverpool player or would be very soon. A snippet from his interview with the club’s TV channel has been leaked and it’s heartbreaking to read.
Leaked on Reddit, a screenshot has been shared of a video that has been privated on the club’s official YouTube channel which shows Fekir in Liverpool’s training kit for the 2018/19 season.
In the screenshot of the video, the Frenchman apparently says: “I’m really happy to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size…”
It’s my opinion that the full video of the interview conducted with LFCTV will eventually get leaked and that will only further reveal how immersed Fekir was in the thought of becoming a Liverpool player.
Regardless of whether or not you still want Fekir to join Liverpool, there’s no getting past how devastating it must have been for the player to learn that his move to Merseyside had been derailed.
