Liverpool Champions League hero takes hilarious swipe at Chelsea on Twitter
By Emma Sanders
Luis Garcia took a dig at Chelsea by posting an image of his Halloween outfit on Twitter which replicated his ‘ghost goal’ against them.
The former Liverpool striker posed in a sheet designed to make him look like a ghost, as he pretended to score a goal which may or may not have crossed the line.
Garcia famously scored a Champions League semi-final goal against Chelsea in 2005 before Liverpool went on to win the competition, but the Blues complained the ball hadn’t fully crossed the line.
