- Jamie Carragher – This club legend spent 17 incredible years as a first-team player for Liverpool, winning every major honour going except that allusive first Premier League title. He played more than 700 games in all competitions and became known as one of the best defenders in England for more than a decade.
- Stephane Henchoz – The Swiss defender arrived at Anfield in 1999 to partner Sami Hyypia in defence. He spent six years at Anfield, making almost 200 appearances in all competitions. Unfortunately, following the emergence of Carragher, he lost his place in the team and departed soon after the arrival of Rafa Benitez.
- Steve Harkness – The left-back spent a decade at Liverpool, playing just over 100 games in the Premier League. He finished his career with spells at Benfica, Blackburn, Sheffield Wednesday and Chester City.
- Abel Xavier – The Portuguese only made a handful of appearances at Liverpool but will always be remembered for his rather striking appearance. Having joined the Reds from Everton in 2002, he made just 14 Premier League appearances before moving to Germany.
- Bjorn Tore Kvarme – The formidable Norwegian spent two years at Liverpool in the late 1990s. He would eventually lose his place to Hyypia and Henchoz, who were both brought in by Gerard Houllier, and he eventually moved to France just before the turn of the decade.
- Rob Jones – The right-back made 185 league appearances for Liverpool. He left in 1999, shortly before being forced into an early retirement at the age of 28. Thankfully, his knee has had more than 15 years to recover and we’re all hoping to see the Rob Jones of old running out at Madrid.
