Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher believes three current Liverpool stars deserve to be in an eleven of the club’s greatest players.
Speaking recently in a CBS sports show, Carragher would go on to claim Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah are already worthy of being called Liverpool greats.
The English commentator opted for former Liverpool shot stopper, Ray Clemence ahead of Alisson Beceker between the sticks.
“Well it would start with the goalkeeper, obviously, and that would be a toss-up between Ray Clemence and maybe the goalkeeper now, Alisson Becker. But it has to be Ray Clemence,” Carragher declared.
He’d move on to the defence and explain: “I’ve gone for Trent Alexander-Arnold, ahead of Phil Neal who won four European Cups but I’ve gone with that because I think the influence Trent has on this team is greater than Phil Neal.
“Alan Hansen, before Virgil van Dijk came along, was the greatest centre back who played for Liverpool, so he’s alongside Virgil van Dijk.
“And the position for Liverpool that is never set in stone, left back. Steve Nicol I’ve gone for… he was Footballer of the Year, so a special player and I’ve decided to go with him.
“Steven Gerrard, the greatest player to ever play for Liverpool, in my opinion, goes in.”
“Salah plays out wide and is shifted into midfield to give room for Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush up front.” He concluded
