Liverpool - NBA star LeBron James, who obtained a minority stake in English Premier League club Liverpool in April, says he's looking forward to attending their marquee match with Manchester United on Saturday.

"can't wait!! Amazing" James noted on his @KingJames Twitter feed on Friday.

"At Anfield Stadium, jersey ready for the big match 2morrow"

Pictures of James touring the iconic Anfield ground, and meeting club staff and players, were displayed on Liverpool's website.

The two-time NBA Most Valuable Player obtained a small share of Liverpool in April, when he inked a marketing deal with Fenway Sports Marketing - which is owned by the Fenway Sports Group that is the parent company of baseball's Boston Red Sox and Liverpool FC.

The Miami Heat star has plenty of time to make the trip to check out his acquisition with the NBA mired in a labor dispute.

The pre-season and the first two weeks of the regular season -- which had been scheduled to start on November 1 -- have already been cancelled as warring owners and players failed to resolve their differences.
