FAN CYCLES FROM KOREA TO ANFIELD BUT MISSES TARGET
Jungyu Lee is reportedly a South Korean fan that cycled from his country to Anfield for 235 days, covering 10,000 miles on his bike.
The football fan cycled that far but failed to hit his target of seeing the Reds in action as he missed the ticket. The dedicated fan is pictured in many blogs as a super fan that went all the way for the club.
Lee took plenty photos on his rare move, using a white board in each to show the miles he has covered. Despite his impressive effort he failed to get a football ticker to see Liverpool FC play, so he ended up watching the game from a pub close by.
The hype around on the media when people got to know of his staggering effort earned his notice from his favourite football club. Liverpool handed Lee a ticket to watch the Liverpool vs Tottenham match at Anfield and gave him a tour of the stadium.
Lee shared pictures that revealed he journeyed through China, Russia and Holland. He sets up a camp some nights in a bush, with his bike close by, during his adventurous trip.
“It was 235 days, I am a really big fan of Anfield and Jurgen Klopp – he’s a top guy. I spent around 5,000 dollars, it was really exciting and I was really nervous as I had finished my journey and no more cycling,” Lee told BBC Radio 5 Live.
Lee would likely take a flight back as it remains unknown if he would be able to cycle his way back to South Korea.
