Blog: Chris Brook-CarterLiverpool fear Horny opponents

Chris Brook-Carter | 9 August 2004

The new football season in England begins in earnest this week. For Liverpool, their first game of the campaign involves a trip to Austria tomorrow to play against GAK Graz and their secret weapon.

Graz have risen from the Austrian second division to the brink of the Champions League in just three years thanks, in part, to an energy-boosting sports drink called Horny.

Developed by local gynaecologist Dr Armin Breinl, Horny is already on sale to the general public in Austria and several other countries.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Dr Breinl said: “I wouldn’t go as far to say the drink is the reason behind the team’s success, but a lot of the players drink it and their results have really improved.

“It is a secret mixture that I worked on with my partner for four years and the players swear by it,” He added.

“I got talking to a few of them when I delivered their wives’ babies at the local hospital. They enjoy the effect it has on them and drink it before training and matches.

“I hope it can help them against Liverpool - they are going to need it.”
