Liverpool 'god': I used to train for Reds in an Everton kit

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler reveals he used to train at Liverpool's centre of excellence in an Everton kit, joking 'we only got jumpers when we were 13!'

In a shocking revelation, it has come to light during a recent interview with FourFourTwo magazine that as a youngster Robbie Fowler used to train for Liverpool in an Everton strip.

'In those days you never got a full strip like now,' explained the 38-year-old.

'I used to train in whatever I had at home, which was obviously all Everton.

'We only got jumpers when we were 13!'

Robbie Fowler can claim to be one of the most loved strikers on the Kop in history. Nicknamed 'god' by teammates and supporters, during his younger days there was simply no striker better than him in the Premier League at the time.

In fact, between the years of 1994 and 1997, he was simply breathtaking. He scored 98 goals in 154 games for Liverpool, although sadly his career started to dip from there.

He went on to play for Leeds United, Manchester City, Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers before moving to Australia to finish his career.

He did have a brief second spell at Anfield, which was met with banners of 'God' and 'God - number eleven, welcome back to heaven'. However, like most sequels, it was slightly disappointing and he left as a free-agent.

Nevertheless, the Liverpool striker remains, to this day, a huge fan favourite of those that stand on the Kop.
