This team would have surely won us a Premier League or two!
Jamie Carragher, our former central defender, has named his greatest XI, compiled only of stars he lined up alongside…
He’s left out Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, and a host of players who he won the Champions League with in 2005!
What do you make of his selections…?
GK) Pepe Reina
The Spaniard won the FA Cup in 2006, and the League Cup in 2012 with the Reds, but left permanently this summer to act as Manuel Neuer’s backup at Bayern Munich.
DR) Steven Finnan
Easily Liverpool’s most consistent right-back of modern times, Finnan arrived for a modest fee from Fulham back in 2003, but exceeded expectations throughout his six year stay.
DC) Sami Hyypia
Liverpool’s best Premier League defender by some distance, the giant Finn was a rock at the heart of our back-four for a decade. His partnership with Carragher in central defence was key to our successful Champions League campaign in 2005.
DC) Daniel Agger
The fans’ favourite left to join boyhood club Brondby in the summer, nine years after Rafa Benitez brought him to Anfield. Agger was technically excellent, but injuries meant he could never develop into a truly world-class centre-back.
DL) John-Arne Riise
The Norwegian was most famous for his thunderous left foot, which helped him bag 30 Liverpool goals. His free-kick against Manchester United will be spoken about on the Kop for years and years to come.
