Dad spent three years building ultimate LFC man cave in garden

A Liverpool fan spent three years building the ultimate LFC themed man-cave in his garden.

Jonathan Worsley, from Allerton, finished the treasure trove of LFC memorabilia in time to see the team win the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp's men took the title for the first time in 30 years on June 26 after Manchester City lost points in a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.

For lifelong fan Jonathan, his man-cave couldn't have come at a better time.

Speaking to the ECHO, the 38-year-old said: "It did take three years on and off, different things get in the way – life, I've recently had twins, but it's something I've always wanted to do.

"I didn't think it would end up like that, it sort of grew arms and legs and I got a bit carried away."

The sanctuary takes pride of place in the garden of the home he shares with his wife and three young sons.

Dubbed 'The Doghaus', the sleek space is filled with shirts, trophies and photographs of the Premier League champions over the years.

It's complete with a built-in bar, stadium-style seating in one corner and a large projection screen, ensuring the space will be an ideal spot to watch games.

Jonathan, an electrician, was furloughed from his job which allowed him time to dedicate to getting the man-cave finished alongside his dad Dave.

Reflecting on his staggering collection, Jonathan laughed and said: "We've won too much I think.

"I've collected memorabilia for years – you start trying to think what you want to put up and it just grew and grew.

"It's only just been finished but it'll be a place to get together, for friends and family and a place for me to get away, too.

"The twins are definitely going to be Liverpool supporters, they've got no choice in that.

"I've got a three year old too and he's just starting to show interest in it all."

His friends and family are "amazed" with the outcome of the space.

Jonathan added: "They're absolutely thrilled with it – the final few weeks during lockdown, I was furloughed so it gave me chance to push it along and finish it.

"They've been amazed and they all love it."

Finishing the space has proved a distraction after he and his wife recently welcomed their twin boys.

Jonathan said: "My wife is off on maternity leave with the twins, it's mad – someone said to me 'one's fun, two's a zoo' so god knows what three is.

"It's probably been a good distraction for me – my wife is probably sick of looking through the window at me and thinking, 'when's he going to come back inside and give me a hand'.

"I knew, obviously, if people think like I do, they were going to like it but I was a bit overwhelmed with the reaction – my phone didn't stop buzzing.

"I think the video has had 15,000 views so far."

Jonathan is proud of completing his mission and is spoilt for choice over which item in the vast collection is his favourite.

He added: "It's hard to choose a favourite part – I've mounted all the shirts, I've made a few collages – the fact I've done it myself.

"But the six European cups with the shirts, that's probably my favourite part."
