New York, NY | Current and former players from Liverpool FC visited the Soccer Republic location at McHale’s Bar in New York City for a meet and greet and Q&A with fans.
Fox Sports analyst and Sports Illustrated writer Grant Wahl hosted the Q&A which featured some memorable moments and quotes from Liverpool legends John Arne Riise and Ian Rush, and current first team players Adam Lallana and Ragnar Klavan.
You can watch the full video of the Q&A by clicking here. The highlight of the Q&A came when Grant Wahl asked Ragnar Klavan if he had enjoyed coming to NYC for pre-season and if it was a good experience for him, to which Klavan replied “For me, I am still a New York virgin … and hopefully I’m gonna pop my cherry now”. Needless to say this was met with a roar of laugher from the 150+ lucky Liverpool fans in attendance from supporters groups spanning the entire country from New York to San Francisco, Charlotte to Carlsbad and everywhere in between.
The Soccer Republic would like to thank Carlsberg, Liverpool FC, McHale’s Bar and everyone who attended for making this a fantastic event.
We look forward to bringing more events like this to our fans at all of our Soccer Republic partner bars in the future, so be sure to check back often!
