When the news was announced on Monday that former Liverpool, Lyon, Paris Saint-Germain and Aston Villa manager, Gerard Houllier, had passed away, there was an outpouring of grief from former players.
To a man, all had said what a wonderful human being the Frenchman was as well as being a top class football manager.
For many, Houllier laid the foundations for where Liverpool are at this moment, and the Reds paid a remarkable and warm tribute to him via their social media accounts.
Rest in peace, Gerard Houllier 1947-2020.
