LIVERPOOL, SANJINPosted: October 17, 2011
Why Liverpool? I asked, even though I knew the answer.
“Keegan, Toshack… I was a kid. Do I need to say more?”
This is my second and last post from the road, from Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sanjin, a football encyclopedia disguised into a man, must be the biggest Liverpool fan outside of Liverpool, and the most knowledgable when it comes to the Reds. Together, this Saturday, we watched the game against Manchester United and he showed up wearing the jersey. We abused Evra and most of the other Man United players but, strangely, we couldn’t change the outcome of the game. His weekly column about football in a Bosnian online magazine Sutra iz a real treat (for those that read Bosnian and for those who like to torture themselves with a language they don’t understand). My visits to Sarajevo are not complete without watching at least a single game in his company.
