Liverpool cult hero 'didn't have time to get sangria ready' before Spurs opener

Luis Garcia

Luis Garcia has had Liverpool fans across the globe retweeting this evening.

One former Liverpool player who took on cult status during his time at the club was Luis Garcia.

The 35-year-old winger won the Champions League and FA Cup during his time at Anfield - and finished his playing career in Mexico with Puebla and Pumas UNAM before calling time on his career.

He hung up his boots in January after a career that saw him play for Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Panathinaikos.

He was undoubtedly a popular figure at Anfield during his time at the club - with his flamboyant style, European football success and trademark celebration lending themselves to be appreciated by the Liverpool fans.

And of course there was THAT ‘goal’ against Chelsea in the Champions League that wrote his name into Liverpool folklore.

But nowadays he rests his feet in retirement - and is also on Twitter.

Today he was watching as Liverpool thrashed Tottenham at Anfield - a result that has sensationally catapulted Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table.

And they took no time in making a mark on the game - with the cumbersome lummox that is Younes Kaboul fluffing his lines into his own net inside two minutes.

Unfortunately for Garcia that meant he wasn’t able to get his sangria ready…
