John Barnes is expecting a tighter Merseyside derby on Sunday
Ahead of the Merseyside derby, Adam Bate caught up with Liverpool legend John Barnes to discuss social issues, the game on Sunday, and Jurgen Klopp’s chances of ending Liverpool’s long wait for a title…
It is rush hour at Kings Cross station but one of the most recognisable faces in British football is still able to do a bit more than turn heads. Nowadays it is selfies rather than autographs for John Barnes but that suits him fine. He takes one himself with an excitable woman who is insistent that he is the spitting image of her brother.
The former Liverpool winger is enjoying himself, hosting a hardest shot competition at the station, and life remains busy these days. There is the community work but he does not do it for the recognition. He is still humble, confused why the PR company wanted to send him a car to pick him up. And he’s looking forward to his latest documentary on racism in football.
