5 Liverpool players you have probably forgotten
Liverpool are among the most successful and most followed clubs in English football. Founded in 1892, the Reds have won 18 league titles, five Champions League trophies, three UEFA Cups, three UEFA Super Cups, seven FA Cups, eight League Cups, and 15 FA Community Shields.
Football icons like Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez and many more made a name for themselves while playing for the Reds and are remembered by the fans all over the world for their respective spells at Anfield.
However, there are also a number of players who did not leave such a lasting impression at the club and are hardly remembered by the fans.
Right on this note, here is the list of the five former Liverpool players who you've probably forgotten.
#5 Sotirios Kyrgiakos
The former Greek international, Sotirios Kyrgiakos joined Liverpool from AEK Athens in the summer transfer window of 2009.
Kyriakos enjoyed a decent spell with the Reds and played 30 Premier League games, scoring three goals. He got a lot of praise for his performances for the Reds and was awarded the Standard Chartered Liverpool Player of the Month: October 2010.
The Panathinaikos youth academy graduate left Liverpool to join Wolfsburg in 2011 and also went for a loan spell with Sunderland before retiring from professional football with Sydney Olympic in 2014.
#4 Nabil El Zhar
Big things were expected from Nabil El Zhar when he was signed for Liverpool from Saint-Etienne in 2006. However, he failed to live up to his potential and managed to play only 32 games in all competitions for the Reds in his five-year stay at the club.
The Moroccan joined Spanish team Levante on a free transfer in 2011 and played 94 games scoring seven goals for the Granotas before moving to Las Palmas in 2015. He helped the newly promoted Palmas establish themselves in the Spanish top division and scored four goals in 32 appearances for the La Union Deportiva.
The 32-year-old moved to CD Leganes in 2013 after becoming a free agent and is currently playing for them.
El Zhar's performances at club level also earned him his first senior Moroccan national team cap in 2008 and he played 10 games scoring two goals for the Atlas Lions thus far.
