PHOTO: Liverpool loanee meets sporting legend

Andre Wisdom

Liverpool player Andre Wisdom is currently on loan at Derby County and he has today met athletics legend Michael Johnson.

Andre Wisdom is enjoying an impressive spell on loan at Championship side Derby County, with the Rams flying high in third-place in the table.

Wisdom has made 33 appearances for Steve McClaren's side this season and big things are expected of a player who has already tasted first-team action with Liverpool.

But on Tuesday he came face-to-face with a a true sporting great in the shape of former track athlete Michael Johnson, and posted a photograph on his official Instagram page to prove it.

The American visited Derby's squad to give them a motivational talk at their training ground, and it will be interesting to see how they perform in their final game of the season at the weekend, prior to a playoff campaign that could see them finally return to the top-flight.

Johnson's sporting achievements may simply be impossible dreams for most of the people he addresses. But you can rest assured Wisdom will be hoping to form his own sporting legacy in the years to come.  After all, at just 20, he has shown that he has the talent, and the smarts, to play and triumph at the highest level.
