While most of them have left a positive mark on the club, there have been few who simply failed to light up Anfield and failed miserably in their attempt to do so. There have been quite a few hits and misses, so chalking down the list is quite a tough job. Here are 2 best and worst Liverpool signings in recent time –
Brought in following Fernando Torres’ famed sale to Chelsea, the Uruguayan did not take much time to get used to the Anfield way. He scored several goals and endeared to the Kop like no other. Suarez was always in the thick of things, either in a good way or bad during his time in England.
Although controversy kept following the player, he continued to score goals and put in performances that eventually lead Barcelona prising him away from Liverpool. His time at Liverpool was certainly a success. In his last year at Anfield, Liverpool came agonisingly close to winning the league and they had their talisman to thank for it.
The Brazilian wizard joined Liverpool for as less as £8.5m in 2013 and that looks like a snitch at the moment as he has gone onto establish himself as one of the world’s finest attacking midfielders. He had an impact as soon as he joined the club and endeared to the fans very quickly.
He was also a pivotal part of the team that came close to winning the title under Brendan Rodgers. Still young and hungry, he is now an important part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans and finds himself being the player around whom Liverpool’s attacking waves are orchestrated. It is he, who pulls the strings to perfections and carries the ability to influence games single-handedly.
