Burnley striker, Ashley Barnes has shared that Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp sent him a well-wishing SMS before his team’s clash against Manchester City, telling him that he might sign him if he scores against the blue side of Manchester.
It did not work though as City ran out 1 goal to nil winners and went back to the top of the league.
Barnes said, “I’ve had a few messages yesterday from Liverpool fans making a joke of it but it’s all good,”
“It would mean everything [to win against City].
“Klopp has even given me a sly text to say that if I score he might sign me for next season – so I might be on the move!
“But look, for something so silly, it would be a massive thing if I was to score and we were to win. All of us would probably go down in Liverpool history if we helped them out.”
“These are the games I relish,”
“The ones I want to be playing in. As long as I train well and get selected I can’t do any more. I love playing against big teams especially.
“Ten of my 31 goals in the Premier League have come against the big teams. It’s a great stat for me personally. I thrive in any game, you just try to hit the back of the net. Lucky for me a lot of my goals have come against big teams.
“You just want to show what you’re capable of and hopefully I have done that, shown how good I am.”
