Siya Kolisi visits Liverpool home: ‘I’ve been smiling like a kid’


South Africa’s world-cup winning rugby captain Siya Kolisi has been talking about how happy he was to visit Anfield, the home of Liverpool football club, at the invitation of manager Jurgen Klopp.

Kolisi – the first black person to lead the Springboks – said that it was his dream to visit Anfield and that he has been “smiling like a kid the whole way”.

He met Klopp in Cape Town earlier this month and was then invited to attend a match.

Kolisi, a Liverpool fan, watched the team draw 1-1 against Napoli in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday evening.
