‘I went to the semi-final against Barcelona and that was special. I was in the Anfield Road End.
‘There were a few fans who came over asking for pictures. I wear a cap and try to stay as hidden as possible. I just want to be one of the fans, to enjoy it.
‘I certainly did that in the semi-final. The atmosphere was unbelievable. We got the early goal and you could just feel it around the stadium, the fans starting to believe.
‘Then we got the second and the third so quick. You’re stood there thinking, “How is this happening?” A team like Barcelona, and Liverpool are battering them. It was surreal.
‘The Derby lads knew I was going to the semi-final, so the next day they asked me what it was like.
‘We wanted to do that against Leeds. We knew their fans were going to be hostile but that gave us even more incentive. We wanted to celebrate in their back yard.’
