[Bruce Grobbelaar describes the harrowing events of his time as a teenage soldier during Zimbabwe’s war of independence in the 1970s] It’s you or them. You shoot, you drop and there’s overwhelming gunfire. You hear voices on your side: ‘Hey, corporal, I’m hit’. You whistle to shut them up, otherwise we’re all getting killed. When the firefight is finished, you see bodies everywhere. The first time everything in your stomach comes up through your mouth

[Former Warriors goalkeeper, Bruce Grobbelaar claims to have lifted the curse on his former English Premiership side Liverpool, which will pave way for them to win their first title in three decades] I had a testimonial in 1992, I was sponsored by Zambezi Lager and they sent a witchdoctor with the Zambezi Lager and he went around on the posts, put his little goat’s tail, put all the water over the posts on both sides and got the microphone and he said ‘If you don’t have the Jungleman Bruce Grobbelaar here, you won’t win the league again’.

Of course I went back to South Africa, went to Canada, came back, remember when Stevie G had his slip, well, I went down to the pitch, I went to the Kop End, I peed on the posts and I got thrown out, I didn’t do the Anfield Road, that way we came second

I’ve fulfilled my task because last season I played for Hotel Tier in a corporate game here, we were in the dressing room and the guys said you’ve got to do the business today

You can’t put the blame on me, it was the witchdoctor, I did (invite him to the game)

[Bruce Grobbelaar absolutely devastated after death of former Liverpool teammate Michael Robinson] I am absolutely devastated. I knew that he has a problem with cancer and was in remission but I am devastated that he has passed. Listen, wherever he has been in football, Brighton, Liverpool and then Spain where he became a football pundit, he was a good, genuine guy. He was a superb gentleman

He was just a brilliant person. I want to send a message of condolences to his family. What a special person he was. We have a unique club and it doesn’t matter who comes through that door. Once you are a Liverpool player, you are part of the family and that is why with Michael Robinson it is a sad loss
