Manchester United’s new signing once use to dream of playing for Liverpool

Wout Weghorst thought of playing for Liverpool

Manchester United signed Wout Weghorst on a loan deal from Burnley until the end of the season in a surprising transfer move as he once use to dream about playing for Liverpool.

The Holland international started both matches since his arrival. The 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace away and Sunday’s dramatic 3-2 defeat against the Premier League leaders Arsenal at the Emirates.

Wout spend the first half of the season on a loan at a Portuguese club Besiktas has now landed back on English soil to help United.

The Red Devils had their striker position sorted before the dramatic interview of Cristiano Ronaldo with Pierce Morgan aired. That interview forced United to terminate the iconic number 7’s contract.

After joining the club the Dutch international said in his interview

“fantastic feeling to now have the chance to pull on the famous red shirt.”

But his past comment for Liverpool was something to be remembered.

Weghorst on Liverpool

Speaking to Goal and DAZN in 2020, Weghorst expressed his admiration for the Merseyside giants.

“I always found Liverpool very special I still get Goosebumps from ‘You Will Never Walk Alone’. There are other great English clubs too, and I always liked Milan because so many Dutch played there”,

the Holland international said.

Wout also said

“I am ambitious and want to get ahead. Maybe at some point play at another club, whether in Germany or in England? But at the moment its still far away. I feel good and try to achieve the maximum here.”

Two years earlier, he told the Dutch outlet De Telegraaf

“I have dreamt of [playing for Liverpool] since childhood.”

But now the reality is Wout is a United player who might now never play for Liverpool because of the arch-rivalry. While the Red Devils have already found a spot in the Top 4, the Reds are struggling and far behind the Champions League place.
