Since Jürgen Klopp’s arrival, Liverpool have been transformed. It wasn’t always sunshine and roses though; remember Roy Hodgson? This is Liverpool’s worst XI of the decade:
Goalkeeper: Diego Cavalieri
Picking a keeper was tough, we’ve been lucky enough to have some half decent shot stoppers stick around and it seemed unfair to pick on error prone gloves, so it’s over to you Diego – sorry pal.
Right Back: Philip Degen
The Swiss right back made just 7 appearances in 3 years at Liverpool. Need I say more?
Centre Back: Tiago Ilori
We love to get excited about young talent. Ilori was apparently just young, making just three cup appearances for us in four years.
Centre Back: Steven Caulker
It seems a bit sly to put Caulker at centre back given that he played up top for us but Sebastian Coates scored an overhead kick once.
Left Back: Paul Konchesky
Signing Konchesky was Roy Hodgson’s way of telling Liverpool fans we’d be battling relegation. Captain of Liverpool’s Worst XI.
Right Mid: Oussama Assaidi
Brendan Rodgers told us he would excite us all. He then failed to get a game ahead of Suso and Sterling. Exciting.
Centre Mid: Christian Poulsen
It is getting really difficult to relive these players. What was going on? Couldn’t Gerrard have played centre mid by himself?
Centre Mid: Alberto Aquilani
Hampered by injuries during his time at Liverpool, Aquilani suffered from the scrutiny of replacing Xabi Alonso. I will never get over the loss of Xabi Alonso.
Left Mid: Stewart Downing
One of Liverpool’s most uninspiring signings in modern history. The winger got 4 assists in 46 games in his debut season.
Striker: Milan Jovanovic
With the Hostel films getting axed, Jovanovic was out of work. He made 10 league appearances for Liverpool without scoring.
Striker: Iago Aspas
The Aspas corner. That is all.
