LeBron James offers to play for Liverpool during U.S. tour (pic)


LeBron James isn’t only a minority owner of Liverpool F.C., he also a wannabe team member as well.

James, a noted soccer fan, took to Facebook to offer his services as a “walk-on” during the English soccer club’s upcoming U.S. tour.

“[Shout out] to Coach Klopp & the Reds. Excited to hear you boys are heading out to the West Coast!! If you need a walk on, I got your back,” James writes in the Facebook post.

Liverpool is slated to play two preseason matches in California this month against Chelsea and AC Milan as part of the International Champions Cup series. There is also a match scheduled against AS Roma in St. Louis as well.

While it’s likely — make that a slam-dunk, in basketball parlance — that Liverpool won’t take up James on his offer, perhaps the reigning NBA champ will take some time to take in a match while his club is stateside.
