Liverpool’s greatest XI of all-time named

Posted by

CB) Alan Hansen

As the source puts it, Hansen’s reading of the game, ability to break out from the back, sharp anticipation and stealthy tackling made him the most stylish and effective centre-back in the club’s history.

CB) Gerry Byrne

‘I’ve had many skilful men but the best professional of the lot was Gerry Byrne,’ said Bill Shankly. ‘He wasn’t flashy and he wouldn’t score you goals. But he was hard and skilful and gave you everything he had.’

CM) Graeme Souness

Souness could out-think and outplay opponents but was not averse to outfighting them too should the need arise, establishing himself as one of the best midfielders of his generation. His leadership qualities showed that he had it all.

CM) Steven Gerrard

What more can you say about the current Liverpool skipper? One of the greatest player’s ever to grace Anfield, having led his side to the Champions League in 2005 and the FA Cup in 2006. But that Premier League title always escaped him.
