Legendary Fullback Cafu Has Clarified His Love Of Jon Flanagan

Yesterday on Balls.ie we featured a story on some of the best bromances in the football world, but it appears we left one out, because Cafu and Jon Flanagan are big fans of each other.

It had been a few years since we last heard from Cafu on Liverpool, when he took to twitter to praise Flanagan after his impressive spell in the side which came so close to winning the league in 2014, but even though his verified account tweeted it, it seemed that some doubted if he was serious.

Recently, the World Cup winning captain of Brazil was having a chat with FourFourTwo, and when he was asked directly about his comments on Flanagan, it became very clear that he meant what he said, and added a few more comments this time around:

Sure. I paid him a visit not long ago, we had lunch and took some pictures together.

He is very fit and has everything required to be one of the best full-backs in the world.


There you have it. Cafu is a massive fan of Jon Flanagan.

Unfortunately, injures have badly hindered the development of the young fullback, as he has not played a competitive game for the reds since 2014. Liverpool fans will be hoping he can return to the side soon and start to work on reaching the potential that he has shown and that Cafu believes he has.


Cafu also added that he would have loved to have played in England, and listed a number of team as ideal landing spots:

I would have loved to play for Liverpool, Manchester United or Chelsea.

It's a shame he never graced the Premier League, but he only would have sat on the bench behind Steve Finnan anyway.
