WATCH | Siya Kolisi has fanboy moment at Liverpool match
Rugby World Cup-winning captain Siya Kolisi had his dream come true when he watched Liverpool play live at Anfield this week.
Kolisi, who is a huge fan of the English football team, was all over Liverpool’s social media pages during their Champions League group stage encounter against Napoli.
“Howsit guys, it's Siya Kolisi. I am here at Anfield, super excited. It's always been a dream of mine.
“Thank you to Liverpool for getting me here and inviting me. I think we're going to win today. Probably, I think 2-0 — I believe strongly in the boys,” said Kolisi in a video released on the team's official Twitter account.
“Watch the game. See you guys. Thank you so much, Anfield.”
However, Kolisi's predictions were off the mark as the teams drew 1-1.
“This was one of the highlights. He is such an amazing human being and I understand why the boys play so hard for him,” said Kolisi.
“He came and greeted every single person at the table and spoke to me for over 40 minutes. When I saw him I [almost] fell off my chair.
“Everyone around me didn't understand, but I've got huge respect for him. He said he knew who I was and that he watched the final.”
