Will Hughes was seen ‘shushing’ Manchester United fans yesterday after Casemiro was sent off after putting his two hands around Hughes’ neck yesterday. It was a deserved red card.
Hughes then gestured the number 6 towards the United fans, although unconfirmed it is believed to be a reference to Liverpool’s six European Cup trophies.
“I used to go quite a bit to watch them when I was younger and an academy player but obviously it’s a lot more difficult nowadays,” Hughes told The Express in 2016.
“That was Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, Fernando Torres and Gerrard in their prime. It wasn’t a bad team.
“Why Liverpool? I couldn’t really tell you. They were just the team I followed growing up so you can’t say I was a glory supporter because they weren’t very successful in that period.
“I just had an admiration for them and followed them ever since.”
He added: “Steven Gerrard, with the way he played, the way he went about his game and his demeanour was my favourite player growing up and I followed him quite closely.”
