Everton’s new left-back Lucas Digne reassured fans of the club that his tattoo reading “I never walk alone” has nothing to do with Merseyside rivals Liverpool.
Lucas Digne signed with Everton from Barcelona but he has caused a bit of commotion among supporters when it came to light that he had the words to the Anfield anthem tattooed across his chest.
And in quotes appearing in the Liverpool Echo, Digne said: “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.”
Digne failed to break into Barca’s regular first team ahead of Jordi Alba and went on to explain how he’d twice turned down approaches from Liverpool to further underscore his devotion to his new club.
He said: “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.”
