6 former Liverpool players you didn’t know were still playing

As much as we’d love to tell you Phil Babb is playing so we could use this video…

Oh, would you look at that! We managed to do it!

The iconic Liverpool defender isn’t still playing, sadly, however, these surprising six still are, years after you started to question whether they actually existed in the first place.

The ultimate banter player, with the ultimate banter career…

You’re right in thinking it’s crazy that the striker played for Atletico Madrid. However, the craziest thing about Sinama Pongolle is the fact he actually has a French cap to his name.

The one-time promising Liverpool striker is now at his thirteenth club, Thai team Chainat Hornbill F.C.

Anthony Le Tallec

If you didn’t sign Anthony Le Tallec on Football Manager 2001, you were doing it wrong.

Horrendous blonde cornrows is the striker’s ‘legacy’ at Anfield.

Now playing for Greek outfit,

Atromitos F.C.

Milan Baros

Was going to write a bit about the Czech Republic international’s time at Liverpool, here. But then I saw this tweet and it threw me.

It’s right, isn’t it?!

The former Reds man is now back in his homeland playing for Liberec.

Mohamed Sissoko

Currently a free agent, but at 31, you wouldn’t expect the former Reds defensive-midfielder to hang up his boots, just yet. And it looks like a Premier League return is on the cards for Momo.

Andrea Dossena

We bloody love, Dossena, for one very simple reason. Having started his career at Verona, he then made the very reasonable career path of Treviso – Udinese – Liverpool – Napoli – Palermo – Sunderland. However, after leaving the Blacks Cats, the former Reds defender ended up at Leyton Orient?  – just so wonderfully Football Manager.

After leaving Orient, Dossena is now playing for the Swish outfit, Chiasso.

Maxi Rodriguez

Should’ve been so much more of success on Anfield, although that period were he bagged a couple of hat-tricks in three games was pretty special.

Like most South American players, the former Atletico Madrid man returned home to Argentina after Liverpool, and is still playing for Newell’s Old Boys, now.
