Wout Faes Of Leicester City Comes In Headlines As His Old Quotes Go Viral On Internet Following His Two Own Goals He Scored Against Liverpool

Liverpool was Wout Faes’ favourite team, the centre-back for Leicester City, in 2019. Due to the Belgian defender’s two own goals in the league match between the two teams at Anfield, those remarks have since come to light. Here is what Faes said in 2019 (via HITC):

I’ve been a real supporter of Liverpool since I was a child. I’ve been a few times and when you go to Anfield, it gives you goosebumps.”

Meanwhile, In their matchup with the Foxes on December 30, Liverpool prevailed 2-1 and all thanks to the own goals by Faes.

A single Reds player did not, however, register a goal during the game. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s goals past Alisson Becker gave the Merseyside team a 1-0 deficit in the opening minutes of the game.


Trent Alexander-Arnold sent in a difficult cross from the right side in the 38th minute, and Faes deflected it into the Leicester goal. The centre-back from Belgium scored an own goal again seven minutes later. Faes accidentally gave Liverpool the lead after Darwin Nunez’s strike bounced against the post and his feeble attempt to clear the ball.

The match ended with the score of 2-1 when the game ended, awarding the Reds all three points which Faes will never forget.

Jurgen Klopp’s team is currently sixth in the Premier League after a tricky victory over Leicester. The Merseyside team will next play Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium.

However, Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Leicester, defended Wout Faes following the match with Liverpool. The English manager asserts that Faes bounced back in the second half despite thinking the Belgian defender had a bad night at the game following his two goals that resulted in a brutal loss for his side.
