Miami Heat star LeBron James: Thrill to meet with Liverpool boss Dalglish

Miami Heat star LeBron James admits it was a thrill to meet with Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish during his time in England.

He also met the players and staff at Melwood and made a donation of $10,000 to the LFC Foundation.

After the conclusion of his visit, James described it as 'one of the single best experiences of my life' on his personal Twitter page.

"That came from the simple fact of how passionate and loyal those fans are," he told liverpoolfc.tv.

"But to walk through the facility the day before - to see all the history and achievements was very powerful.

"Liverpool have won 18 league championships and it meant a lot to read about King Kenny and Steven Gerrard - a hometown kid who now captains the team.

"And then to be at Anfield and see 40,000 fans screaming at the top of their lungs, the whole game was an unbelievable experience for me.

"King Kenny is something else.

"His accent is very strong. So it was very difficult to understand what he was saying - but it was great being around him and (Luis) Suarez and Gerrard and Dirk (Kuyt) and those guys. I was very humbled that they knew me."
