It will forever be a quiz question…
The first player signed by Jurgen Klopp to step on the field as a Liverpool player – was Steven Caulker.
Marko Grujic had been acquired for the summer of 2016, but Caulker’s loan deal in January was a massive surprise and one of the strangest deals of our Premier League history.
Caulker came off the bench a few times, but often as a striker – with Klopp wanting to use his aerial prowess to get us out of bother!
Doesn’t that seem like a long time ago?
Anyway – the Englishman – currently with Turkish side Alanyaspor – has answered the call for his Anfield return on social media – by claiming he’ll only come back to Anfield if he’s used as a striker!
We’re not sure the fearsome foursome of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota needs Caulker’s help, but we very much appreciate the offer – and hope he’s doing well on the continent!
I’m only coming back if I’m playing up front! 😂 #YNWA
