Liverpool may not have won the league title for ages now, but still they are rich in tradition and are one of the well supported clubs in Europe. This article is just a tribute 5 best players from the Anfield club in recent times.
1. Steven Gerrard
Steven Gerrard. What can I say about him? The man defines loyalty. Many say that he is Liverpool’s best ever player and it is very hard to disagree. He is definitely in the top 3. He carried Liverpool on his back for a long time now and won the champions league title for them single handedly. The goal he scored against Olympiakos will still give goosebumps to any football fan.
2. Sami Hyypia
Liverpool signed him for £2.6 million in 1999, ten years later, he became an absolute Liverpool hero. He made 464 appearances for the Reds and considered to be one of best defenders in the premier league during his days.
3. Dietmar Hamann
Like Hyypia, Hamann was signed in 1999. He was a rock solid defensive midfielder who was famous for his hard tackling in the football field. Hamann made 283 appearances over 7 years spell at the club. He will be forever remembered for his inspiring performance in 2005 champions league final.
4. Jamie Carragher
Carra was always going to be on this list. One of the best and most loyal servants ever seen at Liverpool. He has won 10 trophies with Liverpool throughout his career. Carra will be retiring at end of this season and will be huge miss for the Liverpool fans.
5. Xabi Alonso
Xabi Alonso is still one of the best midfielders in the world. His vision and passing is second to none and probably the best passer Liverpool ever had in their rich history. It will be a long time before Liverpool will field someone like Alonso again.
