Steve Finnan has vanished. According to reports in the Liverpool Echo, the organisers of a commemorative tenth anniversary celebration of our last Champions League triumph have been unable to locate the right-back, who played the first 45 minutes in Istanbul before being withdrawn due to injury.
The ECHO Arena will play host to another special night next Monday, ten years to the day since Steven Gerrard inspired that most memorable of comebacks against AC Milan.
Every Liverpool player who featured in the matchday squad, including the likes of Djimi Traore and Igor Biscan, have been invited. Every player except the former Republic of Ireland international, who no one can seem to find.
Finnan played 217 games for Liverpool between 2003 and 2008. After leaving Anfield he joined Espanyol in Spain, before finishing his career with Portsmouth, where his last game before retirement proved to be the 2010 FA Cup final.
According to ‘Premier League heroes‘ Finnan left football at the start of the new decade, instead focusing on his business interests, which included a property development company called Finnan Developments.
Unfortunately, there is no clue as to how out of date this information may or may not be. So if you’ve seen Finnan recently, remember to let somebody know!
