Liverpool supporters respond to Lucas Digne's claim that he rejected them twice
All that trolling over a tattoo.
Lucas Digne hit the headlines during the week for his chest tattoo which reminded plenty of supporters of the Anfield favourite, 'You'll Never Walk Alone.'
Everton's new left-back has a tattoo which reads 'I never walk alone' but Digne has rejected suggestions that his ink has anything to do with his new club's rivals' anthem.
The French international revealed that he turned down the chance to move to the Reds on two occasions in the past and suggested that perhaps Liverpool fans were criticising him out of bitterness.
"There is nothing about football, it is just about my parents," Digne said.
"When I go for my first day at school when I was three or four years old they gave me a necklace with these words on.
"After when I was 18 years old in Lille I got a tattoo and maybe the Liverpool fans are angry because I said, two times, 'no' to sign for Liverpool."
Digne moved to Goodison Park earlier this week on a five-year deal for £18 million and insisted that he was always going to choose the Toffees over Liverpool.
"Two times, the first after Lille when I went to Paris and the second time was after Rome. I said two times 'no' because I am a Blue," the former Barcelona full-back reiterated.
Well some Reds supporters have responded to Digne's claim by digging up an old story about their current first-choice left-back Andy Robertson rejecting the chance to move to Everton back in 2014.
