Earlier in the week I reported about a Norwegian striker, Mohammed “Moa” Abdellaoue, who had been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Bad news, it turns out he’s a Liverpool fan.
“Liverpool are my club,” he said. “I am a Liverpool supporter, although not a member of the supporters’ club. Of course it is great to be compared to Solskjaer but I am only Moa. I am the person I am. I play football and enjoy myself. I have not heard anything directly from United and got the news through the Norwegian media. I have not received any information from my adviser and do not know anything about the trial. But I cannot go around thinking about that sort of thing.”
