NBA star Kobe Bryant has revealed that Liverpool FC were his boyhood heroes.

Despite being a shameless fan of Barcelona, the the LA Lakers hit man spoke of his love for the Reds as a youngster growing up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania less than 24 hours after New England Sports Ventures won control of the club.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow's Merseyside derby clash with Everton, Bryant told BBC's Football Focus about his childhood passion and predicted an away win for the Anfield outfit, who are currently 18th in the Barclays Premier League.

He said: "When I was a kid growing up I absolutely loved Liverpool.

"So I'm going to go with Liverpool and say they're going to win 2-0."

Bryant becomes the latest in a long list of high-profile supporters of Liverpool, joining the likes of Samuel L Jackson, James Bond star Daniel Craig and John Barrowman, who spoke earlier this week of his hurt at the recent problems that had beset the club.

He said: "I'm a Liverpool fan through and through.

"We gotta sort this problem out as quickly as possible.

"It kills me to see my team in this mess."
