Wonderful interview with our wonderful tattooed midfielder/mandatory hug-giver  

'Meireles living in the shadows'

ALSO: video now added under cut
from October 31, 2010

We are sat outside the entrance of one of the principal tourist traps at Liverpool's Albert Docks. As late morning busies into lunchtime, the stylishly attired Liverpool midfielder thoughtfully answers an hour's worth of questions. Not a single supporter from this football-obsessed city sidles up to request an autograph or photo.

Eschewing the modern footballer's favoured mode of transport a couple of weeks back, the World Cup goalscorer took his six-year-old daughter, Lara, on the fast train to London. Not one passenger recognised him, and Raul Meireles loves it this way.

more on our sekrit Portuguese ninja this wayCollapse )

So happy I found this interview! He's so great, definitely deserves this growing LJ fanbase of his lol.

This is my first LJ post in...any community, actually. Please let me know if I need to fix anything :)



Since this seems to be a slow news day and this doesn't really need a whole new post, just wanted to share Meireles' episode of 'O Regresso dos Incríveis' that I found on Youtube!

Yay, thanks for sharing that interview! Loved him in the World Cup, loving him now at Liverpool and he was awesome against Chelsea yesterday - yep, great player! I love how he puts emphasis on the team and all that <3

Aaaah thank you for posting this! The more I see of him the more I love him. They're different types of players but there's something about him that reminds me of a certain ex liverpool player who also lived in the city centre that we've struggled to replace the last couple of seasons...

I feel the change of atmosphere. In the last game against Blackburn it was unbelievable. The supporters were always with the team, but the last game I felt something different - the optimism. And we won.

I said exactly the same thing last night!

I was already starting to love him just by the way he is on the pitch, this interview sealed it. I love him <3

I love him even more! I find it adorable that him and his wife have matching tattoos and that she has more than him.

Lovely post. I really want Meireles to score because he's well due.

He sounds like such an awesome guy. I can't believe his wife has more tattoos than him. :p
