(Video) Exclusive: Three-time league winner names trophy that ‘meant the most’ during his Liverpool career

Posted by

Liverpool have a ‘Champions Wall’ that boasts our incredible history and there are many players who have been fortunate enough to add several pieces of silverware themselves, leading to one ex-Red naming his greatest achievement.

Speaking exclusively at the book launch of Crossing the Park: The Men Who Dared to Play for Both Liverpool and Everton, Steve McMahon was asked which trophy meant the most to him during his Anfield career and said: “This one’s easy for me, really easy – it’s the ’89 FA Cup final, after the Hillsborough disaster, for many, many reasons.

“Obviously I played for Everton and Liverpool, captained both and being from the city meant so much to me. I played for them six minutes at Hillsborough and it was soul destroying”.

The 61-year-old went on to describe the emotions of playing in the tragic semi-final and then going on to beat Everton in what was a historic day in both the club and city’s history.

Sat alongside Kevin Sheedy, it’s also interesting to hear the former Ireland international’s take on events too on a day when Merseyside came together in memory of the victims of its greatest sporting tragedy.
