New Everton signing Lucas Digne says that he twice rejected a move to Liverpool.
Digne was questioned about his tattoo, which reads ‘You’ll never walk alone’ and had been highlighted by a number of Liverpool supporters.
But Digne says the tattoo has nothing to do with football, and used the opportunity to endear himself to Everton supporters.
“My tattoo has a story but it’s not about football,” Digne said.
“When I was three or four years old, I went for my first day at school and my parents gave me a necklace with these words.
“Maybe Liverpool fans are so angry against me because I said two times no to Liverpool. I’m blue.”
