Liverpool’s players were given a hilarious send-off as they boarded their team bus for their match against Leeds United: a man playing ABBA hit ‘Money, Money, Money’ on the saxophone.
Jurgen Klopp, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and co. were all boarding the coach for the trip to Elland Road from a hotel – with a lilting sax version of the Swedish quartet’s song rising through the air.
Apologies; yes this was a saxophone and not a trombone.
Also, which I know is very unbelievable however is 100% true, the guy playing the sax was also hulahooping at the same time:joy:

While it’s clear that Liverpool manager nor his players were consulted on the matter – as Klopp reiterated before the kick-off against Leeds – clearly this protesting saxophonist thought they were an appropriate target for the ills of the club’s owners, as he unleashed the 1976 hit.
When Liverpool finally arrived at the ground – presumably the squad humming ABBA as one – they were greeted by Leeds players warming up in ‘Champions League: Earn It’ T-shirts. Another dig at the Super League, which will be in part a closed shop protecting the biggest clubs.
The 53-year-old claimed on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show that nobody needed to tell Liverpool or their players that a place in the Champions League had to be earned on the pitch.
The 12 founding teams involved in the Super League include six from the Premier League. Liverpool are joined by Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham.
The English clubs are joined by a trio from Serie A in AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus; as well as three from La Liga: Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

There has been on word on an official anthem for the competition.
But we strongly believe that ‘Money, Money, Money’ would be a fine option to replace the Champions League theme as ideal music before Super League kick-offs.
