History always presents the name of the Beatles filled by John Lennon, but one interesting fact here is how he does not like football as much as said by the band’s agent, Ryan O’Brien. However, many of the families near Lennon mentioned that he was a Liverpool fan.
George Harrison, Ringo Starr, and Bill Shankly
Not much different from Lennon, where George Harrison is also known not to like soccer. But the child, Dhani, is known as a Liverpool fan and is often seen in the stadium to witness his favorite club action.
