TOP TEN Worst ever Liverpool players

6. Jimmy Carter – No, not the former US president, Carter was one of Kenny Dalglish’s last signings as manager for £800,000 back in 1991 from Millwall. Played only five times in the league for Liverpool and was infamously subbed by Graeme Souness against Chelsea minutes after being sent on as a sub himself. Was sold to Arsenal for £500,000 where he spent 4 years.

7. Frode Kippe – Kippe never played for Liverpool in the league. As Gerard Houllier’s second signing as manager after Jean-Michel Ferri, the Norwegian centre-back was expected to play some part in Liverpool’s first team but he lacked pace to succeed in the top flight and was loaned to Stoke twice in 1999/2000 and the 2000/2001 season.

8. Salif Diao – A useful tackler and a hero for Senegal for his performances during the 2002 World Cup, Diao never lived up to expectations when he moved to Anfield. After making 61 appearances in three years, he was allowed to move after Rafa Benitez decided not to renew his contract. Houllier had faith in him but the Spanish manager did not and he found himself playing in the Championship with Stoke.

9. El-Hadji Diouf – The Senegal striker cost £10m. Despite being named African player of the year twice in a row and starring at the World Cup in 2002 with Senegal, Diouf failed to live up to expectations while on Merseyside. Despite scoring twice on his debut at Southampton, Diouf only scored six goals in the entire season and was hastily moved from his favoured striking position to the right wing. The Senegalese went fourteen months without scoring a goal for Liverpool and was sent out on loan to Bolton by Rafa Benitez.

10. Bernard Diomede – Diomede is on this list as he only played three league games during his time at Anfield. He looked like a bargain after Houllier bought him for £3million in 2000 for he had played three games in France’s World Cup winning side in 1998. Injuries and a lack of effort meant Houllier rarely picked the player and he was sold back to France in 2003.
