No surprise, as we reported yesterday, that Damian would attend the 2018 UEFA Champions League final today, Saturday, May 26, 2018 at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine in support of his favorite football team, Liverpool, in the LFC vs. Real Madrid match. Damian posted this video to Twitter as he boarded the plane headed to Kyiv.
Damian has been a longtime fan of LFC since childhood – he took part in the coverage at Anfield for the first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League tie with Manchester City on April 4 and last year he celebrated his 46th birthday at Anfield for Liverpool’s visit of Tottenham.
An avid Reds supporter, Damian (pictured with Clive Owen above) made the epic journey to Kyiv in the hope of being witness to a historic battle to take the UEFA Champions League trophy for the sixth time. But it wasn’t meant to be. Although his Redmen lost to Real Madrid 3-1 and no doubt he was gutted, Damian showed resilience in defeat by offering sportsmanship for his team and fans abroad.
