Our boy came back. It took a while though, I think we have tried to get him in the two previous windows and twice he turned us down so I suppose as the old saying goes it was third time lucky.
In typical fashion when he came out for Liverpool against us he tucked one away for them but with very muted celebrations so by the looks of it the deal was already sealed. We sold him for nearly 7 million and got him back for free but 10yrs older of course.
Neutrals thought it wasn’t an inspiring move by us but we love him! Good or not in our claret and blue tinted glasses it was always going to be a good move and for 31 he still has a bit of energy about him.
My quality rating for this signing:- A claret and blue 10/10 of course!!
