Slovakian star David Hancko confesses his love for Liverpool and continues his contact with them amid transfer rumors

Star defender, David Hancko has admitted that he is a Liverpool fan amid transfer rumors. The Slovakian’s agent recently revealed that Liverpool is interested, but he expects him to continue at Feyenoord for the time being.

The 26-year-old has a contract with the Eredivisie club until June 2028. Hancko has shone for the Dutch club since joining them in a €6 million deal from Sparta Prague in August 2022.

The Slovakian defender played a key role in their Eredivisie title while making 45 appearances in all competitions with the club last season.

In a recent interview, he opened up about transfer interest from the Reds while admitting that he watched the club’s famous 2005 Champions League win against AC Milan. Liverpool came from 3-0 down at halftime in Istanbul in May 2005, drawing 3-3 and winning the European Cup on penalties.

In the interview, he said:

“It all started with the Istanbul Champions League final in 2005, which my parents allowed me to watch until the end, and I didn’t have to go to bed even when extra time was going on. And then came Martin Skrtel.”

“I have been a Liverpool fan ever since. I follow the English Premier League the most, so that is my dream. My role model has always been David Beckham, but I feel most for Liverpool, but so far nothing is happening. Because of my new contract it won’t be easy. If there is a possibility and it is good for us, why not?”
