“If you pull on the shirt, you play to the final whistle. That’s the Liverpool way. You never give up – even in extra time. Last-ditch clearances make the difference. It’s the same whether you’re competing in the Champions League or if you want to kick ciggies. Never give up giving up. Doing something big – for the sake of your health, your family or your finances – you’ve got to bring passion and motivation into play. Am I saying it’s easy to kick ciggies? Never. The Kaiser was a smoker, so I know how hard it is to give up smoking. But if you get the SmokeFreeLiverpool team behind, you’ll never walk alone.”
