Funnyman Mike Myers returned to his Liverpool roots in England on Saturday (09Nov13) to cheer on his favourite Premier League team.

The Canadian actor, who grew up a massive Liverpool fan thanks to his city heritage, was the guest of honor for the team's match against Fulham and took to the hallowed turf before the game to let fellow fans know he's as die-hard as they are.

He said, "I'm so thrilled to be here, I cannot even believe it. I'm normally really chatty but I'm speechless right now.

"I was born in Canada in '63 and my parents came to Toronto in '56, and there's no-one more English than an Englishman not living in England. Our house was a shrine to Liverpool. I love the people here and I really do think it's my home."

He added, "I did not sleep last night... I'm so jazzed to be here. I can't even talk, I can't look at the soccer players in the face. I'm even starstruck by Anfield, the pitch. I didn't even want to look at it - I was a little afraid."

And as for the team's chances to win the Premier League this season, he stated, "I think Liverpool have every chance of getting into that top four this year. When (Daniel) Sturridge and (Luis) Suarez get the ball you just don't know what's going to happen. It's old-school Liverpool, getting the ball and distributing it upfield."

Myers proved to be a lucky charm for the home team - they beat Fulham 4-0 to take over second place in the English Premier League.
