Warriors’ Steve Kerr reacts to Liverpool’s comeback over Barcelona in Champions League
On Tuesday, Liverpool FC completed one of the most impressive and unlikely comebacks in recent sports history. After falling behind 3-0 in the first leg of the semifinals, Liverpool came back to rout Barcelona in a 4-0 victory. They will now head to the Champions League finals on June 1.
Liverpool fans around the world rejoiced. Among those celebrating the victory was one notable fan stateside – Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.
He took to his personal Twitter to express his excitement:
YOU'LL NEVER WALK ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!

Many fans were quick to point out the irony of the situation. In their loss to Liverpool, Barcelona blew a 3-0 lead (as well as, technically, a 3-1 lead). Kerr’s Warriors infamously also blew a 3-1 lead against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Finals.
But Kerr is likely ignoring such comments and enjoying the win. He has long been an avid Liverpool fan. He last Tweeted about the team in December of 2018 to celebrate a pivotal victory over Bournemouth.
Now that Kerr has gotten his soccer fix, he can return his attention to the playoffs. In their own semi-final match-up, his Warriors are tied with the Houston Rockets at two games apiece. After taking a commanding 2-0 series lead, Golden State squandered the next two games on the road.
The team will need to rebound with a win at home in Game 5. They will face off in the pivotal match-up on Wednesday night at 10:30 P.M. EST.
The Warriors and Kerr hope they can borrow a bit of Liverpool’s magic and get past the Rockets.
