Liverpool have pulled off some of the most miraculous moments in footballing history. The Reds home ground has seen some remarkable performances, some inexplicable results. As a result the internet is littered with videos of these glorious nights. Hamburg striker Simon Terodde has admitted that he searches Liverpool songs online and he dreams of a visit to Anfield.
Who is Simon Terodde?
32-year-old striker Simon Terodde is a journeyman of the German game.
The 6ft 3in striker has played up top for teams across the country and has earned cult status at some of these sides due to his reputation for scoring big goals in big games.
He has earned the tag of ‘derby specialist’ for his knack for netting against local rivals whilst playing for Stuttgart, Koln and Hertha Berlin.
This summer the forward joined Hamburg SV on a free transfer, leaving Koln.
Terodde and his Liverpool fascination
Terodde has been in fine form this season, netting six goals in his first five games for Hamburg in the Bundesliga 2.
His hot streak has led to rapper Daweed releasing a song in his honour, in light of the tune the striker was asked about his own music preferences, the forward told Abendblatt:
“I like to surf the net and look for Liverpool songs, for example. In that regard, I’m already crazy about football,” he told the newspaper. Anfield Road is still on my list. And Boxing Day.”
What RTK has to say
As someone who has been on the Kop for some of those special moments, those special nights, I can completely understand why Anfield has found its way onto the striker’s bucket list.
It’s hard not to be taken in by the intoxicating videos of the ground on those bouncing nights under the floodlights – the crowd roaring and singing in unison.
Fingers crossed in the New Year we’ll see fans at the ground again, producing the atmosphere which has carried the Reds through so often.
