Everton fullback Digne explains 'Never Walk Alone' tattoo: I rejected Liverpool twice

Everton fullback Lucas Digne insists he's twice turned down Liverpool during his career - despite his 'Never Walk Alone' tattoo.

Digne joined the Toffees earlier this week in an £18m transfer from Barcelona.

Since the deal was completed, it has been revealed that the 25-year-old has a chest tattoo with the words 'I never walk alone' written.

"There is nothing about football, it is just about my parents," Digne told the Liverpool Echo.

“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."
