Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has taunted Liverpool saying they’ll be bringing the infamous beach-ball with them to Anfield!
Earlier this season, five minutes into what proved to be a tight encounter, Darren Bent’s shot was deflected past goalkeeper Jose Reina by a beachball which had been thrown on to the pitch by one of the travelling fans behind the goal, and its intervention proved decisive.
Bruce joked: “It [the beachball] is in the skip. We have packed it.
“The game will always be remembered for it. No matter that we beat them 1-0 on the day, it will always be remembered for the beachball incident.”
