Former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar has revealed he once peed on Anfield’s goalposts to help them lift the 2019-20 Premier League trophy.
Grobbelaar said he was told that in Africa if a pitch was cursed then the remedy was to pee on the posts, and the ex-goalkeeper admitted that he watered the Anfield pitch in his own special way before Liverpool’s title charge in 2019-20.
I peed in a bottle, poured it all down the posts and crossbar at both ends, and saved a penalty at the Anfield Road End [during our corporate game],” he told FourFourTwo.
“Then the Reds went on an undefeated run at Anfield and won the Premier League!”
Liverpool ended a 30-year wait to be crowned English champions in 2020. However, the title has eluded the club since, with the Reds pipped to top spot last season by a single point.
Liverpool won the title in 2020 with seven games left to play. It’s the earliest title win in English top flight history, according to Opta.
