As with many Reds I was gutted to hear the news that Sami Hyypia has signed a 2 year contract with Bayer Leverkusen.
His service to Liverpool F.C. has been outstanding and Big Sami has done everything that was ever asked of him, he is true Liverpool legend. Sami has spent 10 years at Liverpool with 463 appearences and 35 goals winning the League Cup, UEFA Cup, Charity Shield, Super Cup, Champions League & FA Cup. He was also our skipper for over a year and a half until Stevie G. came of age.
Sami had a bad spell last season with two own goals in a short period of time and some fans unfortunately had forgotten all that he had done and focused on these two mistakes. I found this video below which talks about this and Sami’s great service to the club.
Sami will wear his beloved No.4 at Leverkusen so now I have a reason to watch the Bundesliga next season :-)
Best luck for the future Mr. Hyypia,
We will miss you and once again thank you for your service.
You Will Never Walk Alone.
