Everton left-back Lucas Digne has poked the hornets nest after a photo of his chest tattoo was revealed online which bears the words “I never walk alone.”
SoccerAM (yeah, we forgot that was still a thing as well) tweeted a photo of the tattoo claiming it to be an awkward moment for Everton fans. But the joke was on them. And Liverpool.

The Reds famously stole the use of the song “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Celtic in the 60’s and use the words as a sort of lazy motto, which led to Twitter Reds from all over Scandinavia to retweet the photo.
But it has nothing to do with football, let alone Liverpool (or Celtic, for that matter, sorry Hoops fans) although Digne did poke fun at our neighbours in Devon by revealing that he rejected two chances to move to Anfield. Nice.
Digne explained, “There is nothing about football, it is just about my parents.
“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.”
“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.”
