Basketball icon and four-time NBA champion LeBron James had a message for Liverpool supporters following the Reds’ Champions League last-16 victory against RB Leipzig.
James, who is also a shareholder at Anfield, certainly would have been left impressed from the team’s performance, as Liverpool emphatically returned to winning ways to take a commanding step towards the quarter-finals of the competition.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were on the scoresheet as Liverpool put to bed a three-match losing run in emphatic style with victory in the Hungarian capital.
Liverpool have the opportunity to put the tie to bed next month on March 10. They need to avoid defeat to confirm themselves as part of the last-eight of the competition.
James, too, would have been pleased with the other Champions League result last night, as Paris Saint Germain put Barcelona to the sword in a stunning 4-1 win at the Camp Nou.

It was only last month that a number of supporters spotted that the Los Angeles Lakers star and Liverpool part-owner exchanged profile pictures with World Cup-winning forward Kylian Mbappe on Instagram.
The 22-year-old sensation has been linked with an exit from the Parc de Princes in recent months and the reigning Premier League champions have been touted as a potential destination.
Both James and Mbappe collaborated together as part of an initiative with Nike, with both sporting icons amongst the highest-paid athletes with the brand.
