Is Graeme Souness?
Graeme Souness has revealed he is a vegan to the surprise of football fans.
The former Liverpool midfielder revealed he hasn’t eaten meat for three years during Sky Sports Super Sunday coverage from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The 68-year-old stated his passion for animal welfare was the reason behind his veganism. This took plenty of viewers by surprise, who couldn’t believe what they had heard.
“I think the way we treat animals is despicable, but that’s for another day," he shared. "I’m in the process of having a new house built, I’ve air source heat pumps, I’ve got solar panels, so I’m aware of it, and I’m trying to do my wee bit.”
