Many players in Liverpool history have started their career at the club with all the emotion of wearing the Red shirt and engrave their names in the glory days of the club, but only few of them reached their goal. By the way, many players convinced the fans for a while or were a complete failure.

That has been the case, for example of Mario Balotelli, who arrived to the club as a huge replacement of Luis Suarez, after his exit to FC Barcelona. It happened with Andy Carroll, arriving from Necastle with the expectation of being a Liverpool figure without success. In the same sense, some players were able to show some qualities and create good memories in some games with the Reds but were not able to conquer any title and they were erased from the minds of the fans.

During the first years under the Jürgen Klopp management, many players looked like promising starts, able to conquer important titles with Liverpool, but they couldn’t. It was the case of the English striker Daniel Sturridge, placed at the 23rd position on the Liverpool all time top scorers’ list with 68 goals for the Reds, ahead of legends like Steve McManaman or Graeme Souness.


Currently the player has no job

After been banned from all football activities for four months in 2020, the player signed for Trabzonspor and played in Turkey before playing for in the Australian league with Perth Glory. After his exit from Perth, the player hasn’t been able to find a new club yet and his days as Liverpool striker have been almost forgotten among the fans.
