Liverpool’s team bus on fire at Anfield as team trade tackles against Wolves

Liverpool’s team bus caught FIRE as it made its way into Anfield for Sunday’s title blockbuster against Wolves.

There was an electric atmosphere outside the ground as the bus rolled through a cloud of red smoke created by flares.

And the players’ coach didn’t come through the mayhem unscathed as a photo posted by a fan showed a small fire on the roof.

The burning had created a hole just beneath the club crest. Players and staff were unaffected.

Thousands of fans had gathered outside the ground to greet the Reds on their arrival – as has been a custom for big Liverpool games in recent years.

Supporters created quite the atmosphere with raucous singing as many held up flags and flares to mark the momentous occasion as the Reds attempted to pip Manchester City to the Premier League title.

The Reds needed to win, and hope City dropped points at home to Aston Villa, to be crowned Premier League champions.

And the Kop was also a spectacular sight ahead of kick-off with the Anfield faithful waving their boys off to Paris next week for the Champions League final.

Revealed: Disappointing text message Kylian Mbappe sent to Real Madrid president after his PSG decision

Reports have emerged in Spain over the devastating text message Kylian Mbappe forwarded to Real Madrid president revealing his decision to remain at Paris Saint-Germain.

Real Madrid had long believed that Mbappe would be their player next season and that a deal would be wrapped up once the forward’s PSG contract expired this summer.

According to El Chiringuito, the 23-year-old sent Perez a text message that left the Real Madrid president and the rest of the Bernabeu hierarchy in shock.

“I inform you that I have decided to stay at PSG,” the message reportedly read.

“I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to play for Real Madrid, the club I have been a fan of since I was a kid.

“I hope you understand my decision, good luck in the UCL Final.”

Mbappe’s decision comes as a devastating blow to Perez, who has focused his entire transfer strategy in recent years on signing Mbappe. For example, Real Madrid did not push that hard to sign Erling Haaland as they were set on agreeing a deal for the French international.

Los Blancos also lost out on signing Mbappe when he left Monaco in 2017, while they had a £154million bid rejected for him last summer.

The Champions League final against Liverpool will be the club’s immediate focus, but Perez will now surely be desperately working in the background trying to sign another superstar name this summer.

As for Mbappe, he is set become the world’s highest-paid player and perhaps the most influential. The Athletic claim he will earn around £34million a year, which equates to roughly £653,000-a-week.
