Red Bull Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch has revealed that he took a souvenir from Anfield when visiting with a regional US schoolboys' team almost 30 years ago.
The 45-year-old is preparing to return to Liverpool for a Champions League group stage encounter with last year's winners, buoyed by his side's impressive 6-2 win over Genk on the opening matchday.
But first, during an appearance on SiriusXM FC's The Football Show, Marsch revealed the unique and somewhat strange item he treated himself to during his trip to Merseyside three decades ago.
As quoted by the Liverpool Echo, he said:

But the Austrian club are not to be written off, earning nine wins and a single draw domestically so far this season, as well as possessing prodigal young talent Erling Braut Håland.
Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp has himself warned his players over the threat Salzburg pose, suggesting in his own pre-match press conference they are a side perfectly capable of causing an upset against the very best in Europe.
