Brazil legend Cafu praises Liverpool's Jon Flanagan's performance on Twitter

Brazilian World Cup winner Cafu watched Liverpool's demolition of Tottenham.

Jon Flanagan is proving to be one of Liverpool's biggest success stories in a season full of them.

His committed performances up and down the flanks have seen Liverpool fans dub him the 'Red Cafu', after the two-time Brazilian World Cup winner of 1994 and 2002.

The former Roma ace is now retired, but still keeps his eye on football, as illustrated by his comment on Twitter during Liverpool's 4-0 win over Tottenham.

Cafu went onto add that he was so inspired by Liverpool's 'amazing' performances, that he was even planning a trip to Anfield, and gave his view on their title chances.

Jon Flanagan was making his 17th Premier League start of the season and has turned into an undroppable figure for Liverpool. Against Spurs he provided his first assist of the campaign, adding to the goal he scored against Tottenham in December.
