Premier League Clubs and Their Most Famous Celebrity Fan – Oct 13, 2018

Liverpool Football Club Has a Fan for Life

by Ted Winters | The Sports Daily | October 12, 2018

Celebrities often get behind and endorse their chosen sports team on a regular basis that provides a wealth of additional exposure that can only go down as a major marketing boost.

But which of the top five Premier League clubs has the biggest fan to help pack the ultimate marketing punch?

Liverpool

Liverpool can boast a plethora of famous supporters (Liam Neeson, Lana Del Rey, Mike Myers) all around the world but probably the hottest right now is Damian Lewis.

The actor can be seen everywhere at the moment and refuses to keep his colours close to his chest often spotted at Anfield when he gets the chance.

Manchester United

It turns out that singer, actor, dancer and ladies man Justin Timberlake is a fan of the Red Devils.

The former NSYNC star is often captured sporting a Manchester United beanie and quite simply due to his huge following can attract millions of eyes upon the red club of Manchester.

Although the Red Devils following is huge, any extra little help is never a bad thing.

Manchester City

Without doubt the Citizens most vocal supporter is former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher.

His brother Liam is also a stanch City fan, but it is Noel who is often spotted at the Etihad stadium and is a regular on sports radio shows chatting about his beloved club and heaping praise on the current crop under manager Pep Guardiola.

After a magical Liverpool night that lived up to every effusive word ever uttered about Anfield, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are now going to have live up to all the hype about them to turn this tie around. The Catalan will maybe have to produce his greatest feat of management yet, or something at least as wondrous as Jurgen Klopp conjured here for this coruscating 3-0 victory that itself will match anything this great old ground has seen in Europe. That’s the scale of the task for City in the second leg, that’s how magnificent Liverpool were.

It was amazing to think that the utterly thrashed visitors could be crowned the most commanding ever English champions as soon as Saturday, because it’s been a long time since they have been made to look this callow, this out of ideas, this poor. City’s night started with their bus getting smashed up, and just got worse. The only blemish for Liverpool is the second-half injury to the dominant Mohamed Salah, although Klopp said afterwards the player said he was “fine”. The real key, though, was that Liverpool successfully set a pace that City couldn’t match even when Klopp’s team began to naturally subside.
