The German leading sport magazine “kicker” released a list of the best Bundesliga football players of the year 2009. Sami Hyypiä, the former Liverpool’s number 4, who is actually playing for the front-runner Bayer 04 Leverkusen, was chosen to the best defender of the German league.
What convinced the most was Sami’s serenity, the quality of his headers and decisions, his reliability and inimitable charisma which is something of a rarity in the German football.
“There was no arguing about this choice in our office. Sami Hyypiä is a world class player and he is simply the best defender in our league, there is no doubt about that. Bayer Leverkusen is very lucky to have a player of such a unique quality in the squad. The rest of the league is unimaginable jealous of him”, explained “kicker” in the latest issue of the magazine.
Well, the Liverpool fans can estimate Sami’s value the best. We are happy for him, his success in Germany and for his new team, of course. Congratulations, Sami! You deserve that. But even if your new shirt is also red and it fits good, we would love to have you back. We still miss you!! YNWA
A Happy New Year to all Liverpool players, supporters, empireofthekop.com writers and readers.
