How a Liverpool cult hero trolled Chelsea with his Halloween costume

Liverpool fans will love Luis Garcia’s Halloween costume, Chelsea fans will hate it.

There have been a few rogue costumes from footballers over the years on Halloween, but we think Garcia’s interpretation of his infamous “ghost goal” won last year’s.

To put it in context, let’s go back to 2005, when Garcia scored a crucial goal in the semi-final of the Champions League against Chelsea for Rafa Benitez’s side.


Liverpool went on to beat Milan in one of the competition’s greatest ever finals, as they came back from 3-0 down at half-time.

Garcia’s “ghost goal” fancy dress is exactly the sort of behaviour that make him a cult hero at Anfield.

The Spaniard saw fit to dress up as a ghost before posing in front of some rickety Samba-style nets in a back garden with a ball at his cloaked foot.


We think it’s comedy gold. Hats off to Garcia for earning unlimited brownie points with Liverpool fans for his costume.

He’s also entertained football fans everywhere with his weird and absolutely wonderful costume.

It still haunts Jose Mourinho to this day.
