Double World Cup winner Cafu has given Liverpool full-back Jon Flanagan a mention on his Twitter account, referring to him as ‘the Red Cafu’.
The Brazilian legend was referring to some tongue-in-cheek comparisons to Alan Hutton. Clearly an online brainwashing programme by Liverpool supporters had worked its magic on the former Roma and Milan star, because Flanagan’s name was the first thing that came to mind.
He promised to look out for the young right-back in future games.
