Why Liverpool? I asked.
“When I realized that Yossi Benayoun plays for Liverpool I became a fan. You know, I’m Jewish.”
Lev’s answer further complicates what’s already complicated; he provided yet another reason, first of this kind on this site, to fall for a club. We met in a pub one early Sunday morning and shared the experience of watching, on TV, Liverpool beat Man United. Lev is a newcomer, relatively, to football/soccer world. It’s been about 5 years or so since he started following closely. He used to play soccer at a University and then coach.
In the meantime Yossi left the club but Lev stayed.
