Jari Litmanen still going strong at 40 [video] Posted by Antoine Zammit September 26, 2011 Follow @azammit Now this should make anyone who is my age feel better :-) Former Red Jari Litmanen scores a beauty as his club HJK wins the Finnish cup. 3 responses to “Jari Litmanen still going strong at 40 [video]” Was always a quality player. Its a shame we didn’t use him more.. and an even bigger shame that we got him so late in his career.. Well done Jari Good to know he’s still playing. Great Goal. I used to watch him when the Dutch football was shown on SBS many,many years ago, I thought he was exceptionally good then and still think he was one of the finest footballers around at that time.It was a shame he came to Liverpool late on in his career but at least he came….and he was terrific. Unfortuneatly Houllier wanted pace , not skill and Jari had to go. Don’t forget, Jari played at Ajax with a lot og great footballers, Kluivert, De Doer twins, Danny Blind, Finidi George and a few others whose names I cannot recall.I’m delighted that Jari is still playing…Oh for a Jari Litmanen aged about 22 playing for the Reds now.Dream on Bob.
