With Steven Gerrard’s Liverpool career coming to an end in the summer and a ‘second’ testimonial happening this month, now is a good time to look back on his incredibly successful history at the club.
Here is a lineup of the best players the former England captain has appeared alongside since making his debut in 1998, according to Empire Of The Kop. Do you agree?
GK) Pepe Reina
The Reds came to rely on the Spaniard for the eight year period in which he was the number one, and haven’t replaced him properly since.
RB) Steve Finnan
He may not grab the headlines like Glen Johnson does, but the defender went about his business quietly and successfully. Maybe this shows the dearth of right-backs at Anfield more than anything else.
LB) John Arne Riise
Everyone remembers the Norwegian’s rocket of a left boot, but he was also pretty good when called upon at the back.
