Liverpool have had a number of glorious players play for them over the years, however, there are some players whom the club regret selling. These players had the potential to offer much more, but their journey with Liverpool was cut short, either because of the manager’s arrogance or an unbelievable offer coming in from another club.
One of the most successful clubs in history, Liverpool have struggled to win major trophies in the recent past. While the future looks bright and positive under new manager Jurgen Klopp, the Anfield based club might well still rue these disastrous decisions.
Who knows, if these 5 players were not sold, Liverpool might have been much more successful than they are now.

Fernando Torres shocked the world and Liverpool fans in particular when he made a deadline day move to Premier League rivals Chelsea. The 2010-11 season was a season of turmoil for Liverpool. Roy Hodgson had just been sacked, and Liverpool were struggling to get results in the Premier League under club legend Kenny Dalglish.
The season went from bad to worse when crowd favourite Fernando Torres handed in a transfer request. Many Liverpool fans felt betrayed as the Spaniard had previously spoken about Liverpool being the only Premier League club he will play for.
The shock of letting Torres go was softened by the fact that Liverpool secured the services of Luis Suarez from Ajax.
