Steve McManaman

"We've another boy who's ten and if he sees a tin can on his way to school, he steps over it. Steven was the opposite." Steve McManaman's father could see that his son was born to play football.

"It felt fantastic pulling on the red shirt. I played a couple of games pre-season, but to actually play at Anfield in an important game in the Champions League and to see the Kop, was magnificent. I don't think I could have asked for more. What's great about the Liverpool fans is if you're putting in the effort, they are going to stand by you. I was so pleased when they were cheering me on and it gave me such a lift. You can't help but respond positively to that."
