Bruce Grobbelaar reveal how he freed Liverpool from Premier League curse


Former Liverpool goalie Bruce Grobbelaar has said  Liverpool title drought was the result of a curse by a witchdoctor back in 1992

The Reds moved 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League on Saturday, when a brace from Mohamed Salah proved enough to beat Watford 2-0, the victory which was then followed up by a draw from second-place Leicester City.

Many are claiming that a first top-flight title since in 30 years is in the bag, but Liverpool supporters are remaining wary given the near misses that they had in the past seasons.

However, Grobbelaar says the Reds' 30-year title drought which was as a result of a malediction can now finally come to an end - because he's peed on the Anfield goalposts.

The former Zimbabwe international who was famed for his eccentric style, including that 'wobbly legs' routine in the 1984 European Cup final penalty shootout - was in the Reds team that won the club's last league title in 1990, and he has admitted that a curse was placed on the club shortly afterwards.

Grobbelaar told BT Sport before their coverage of the Watford clash, as former Liverpool players Peter Crouch and Joe Cole sat stunned alongside him in the studio.

"I had a testimonial in 1992 and I was sponsored by Zambezi lager and they sent a witchdoctor with the lager.

"He went around on the posts and put his goat's tail, put his water on the posts of both sides, got the microphone and said, 'If you don't have the jungle man Bruce Grobbelaar here, you won't win the title'.

"Of course, I went back to South Africa, went to Canada, came back. Remember when Stevie G, he slipped? One night game I went down to the Kop end, I peed on the posts.

"That breaks the spell. I got thrown out. Though I didn't do the Anfield Road [complete it] and we finished second.

"Last season I played in a corporate game here, we were in the dressing room and the guy said 'you have to do the business today'," he continued.

"I said, 'okay'. I took a water bottle, poured the water out, peed in the bottle, came back.

"First-half at the Kop end, I splashed it all over the posts. Second-half, I came down to the Anfield Road end and splashed it all over the posts. End of last season."

Surely nothing can stop Liverpool now?
