LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - LeBron James has taken his talents to Liverpool -- and finally gotten his hands on a championship trophy.

The two-time MVP toured the Premier League club's facilities Friday for the first time since becoming a shareholder of the 18-time English champions.

James posted a picture on Twitter of a red No. 6 jersey with his name on it and held up the Champions League trophy won by Liverpool in 2005.

The Miami Heat star will sit in the directors' box at Anfield Stadium for Saturday's Premier League match against Liverpool rival Manchester United.

In April, James obtained a small stake in Fenway Sports Group, which owns Liverpool and the Boston Red Sox.
