Mel C, also known as Sporty Spice from The Spice Girls, has never hidden her love for Liverpool FC. A native of Liverpool, she has been photographed proudly wearing the red shirt of her beloved team on numerous occasions. At one time, she was even rumoured to be dating the then Liverpool midfielder Jason McAteer!
Born in Widnes, near Liverpool, Mel C grew up in a sports-mad Liverpool-supporting family and became an accomplished player herself. Her favourite player is Steve McManaman and she confessed to being heartbroken by his departure for Real Madrid in 1999. A recent interview reveals that there is no doubting her genuine passion for the team.
When asked for her thoughts on Liverpool not making it to the European Champions League at the end of the 1999-00 season, she replied, "I was very disappointed. In fact, I cried. But there's always next season and our new young players are very exciting."
Clearly, Mel C will now be delighted with Liverpool's 2000-01 season which has seen them win three major trophies and qualify for a European Champions League place for the 2001-02 season.
