The boss of non-league Macclesfield Town wants a draw against Liverpool in the FA Cup Fourth Round after knocking out Cardiff City yesterday.

Steve King’s men put the Championship league leaders to the sword at their Moss Rose ground, winning 2-1 – and now King wants to play Liverpool, insisting they are the team he supports.

Liverpool first have to avoid the fate of Cardiff, when they play non-league opposition today in the shape of Mansfield Town later today. And King is clearly hoping they do.

"I would love to get Liverpool away in the next round", King told the BBC.


"They are my team. I will take anyone but Liverpool would be a dream."

King took over at Macclesfield in May 2012.

He currently has Macclesfield sitting eleventh in the Conference Premier, with 33 points from 24 games.

The side were relegated from League Two last season.
