Who is Liverpool’s greatest ever No.7? We decide... (and then you can too)
5. Steve McManaman
McManaman is still heralded for his skill and achievements, which included an FA Cup and a League Cup
The Liverpool of the mid-1990s are largely remembered for their 'Spice Boys' moniker and infamous white suits at Wembley. McManaman was a key member of that team, but it's unfair to ignore the fact that he was an excellent player for the Reds.
A graduate from the Liverpool academy, McManaman signed as a full professional in 1990 and made his debut against Sheffield United in December that year. The Liverpool side of which he became an integral part failed to win the league title during his time at the club, but the Kirkdale lad is still heralded for his skill and achievements, which included an FA Cup and a League Cup.
His best years came away from Anfield, however. Snapped up by Real Madrid in 1999, McManaman went on to win two league titles and two Champions Leagues in the Spanish capital, becoming the first Englishman to triumph in the competition with a non-English club.
Despite a relative lack of trophies during his time on Merseyside, McManaman is still one of the greatest No.7s to have graced the Anfield turf.
