The class of 2005 are finally starting to fade away. Very few of them are still plying their trade as professional footballers – some of them have already been out of the game for many years.
Another one has hung his boots up this week, as Josemi finally said goodbye to the game.
The right-back was signed by Rafa in his first summer at the club and spent two years with us before moving back to Spain with Villarreal. He made 35 appearances for us during his time with the club.
He won the Champions League and the Super Cup while at Anfield, and also won the Indian Super League in 2014.
He’s a legend at his boyhood club, Malaga. He made 93 appearances for them before he moved to Liverpool. In latter years he played for a string of Greek minnows before moving to India.
Thanks for the memories, Josemi – and good luck for the future.
