Liverpool FC have announced a new collaboration with minority shareholder and Los Angeles Lakers small forward Lebron James.

A new range of clothing which includes an alternative kit and a club-themed basketball jersey is set to be released ‘soon’.

James has already been spotted sporting the jersey – a black top with red pinstripes with his famous logo in the middle.

His relationship with Liverpool began in 2011 after the 38-year-old purchased a 2% stake worth £4.7m.

He has become a large ambassador the club in the United States since.


The ‘LFC Nike Lebron 9 Low Adult Shoes’ was James’ first venture in the Liverpool market with this next instalment proving his next step into his basketball and football cross-over.

The basketball legend also broke the NBA’s all-time points record last night with a resounding 38,387 points.

Liverpool were quick to congratulate James last night for his record-breaking feat on Twitter.
