Liverpool news Forgotten Liverpool transfer has become success nobody expected MetiNews.Com
MetiNews.Com - Rarely can a player have been so prominent during their career yet so completely forgotten by Liverpool supporters
Breaking News ! Seven years ago today, two players pulled on a Liverpool jersey for the first time. One was Mamadou Sakho, a Marmite of a footballer who - at least for a little while - became a cult hero on the Kop before an erroneous drug ban and winding up Jurgen Klopp a bit too much put paid to a rollercoaster Anfield career. The other was a Europa League winner who would later go on to lift the Premier League, the FA Cup, play in two World Cups, feature in another European final and star in Serie A. Yet barely anyone remembers his time at Anfield.

Moses had the ideal beginning, netting after just 36 minutes to help Brendan Rodgers' side claim a 2-2 draw. The Nigeria international, then 22, then started the next five games before being an unused substitute in the home win over West Bromwich Albion. Life wouldn't get much better for Moses, who made just a further three starts - the only Premier League one being a 3-1 loss at Hull City - and scored only one more goal, netting in the 2-0 FA Cup win at Bournemouth in January 2014. He was instead restricted to bench duty with 13 appearances as a substitute, none of which lasted more than 22 minutes.

Moses played for less than 70 minutes combined during the second half of the Premier League season as Liverpool chased the title, although his brief outing in the 3-2 win over Manchester City with five games remaining proved pivotal. With the Reds ahead during injury time and hanging on, Moses had the opportunity to break deep into the City half. Instead, a bad touch allowed the visitors to instantly return the ball into the Liverpool half where Jordan Henderson was pressured into his own poor control resulting in a desperate lunge at Samir Nasri and a red card. To this day, Rodgers believes Henderson's three-game suspension cost Liverpool the title as they lost to Chelsea and drew with Crystal Palace. There was no chance of Moses being retained and, with no room at Chelsea, he then spent seasons on loan at Stoke City and West Ham United. But the arrival of Antonio Conte completely changed matters. Moses was a regular at right wing-back as Chelsea won the Premier League, although he was sent off in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal. The following year, he was in the side that beat Manchester United in the final.

Conte's departure saw Moses fall out of favour at Chelsea once more and he agreed an 18-month loan at Fenerbahce, which was ended prematurely before linking up again with his old boss at Inter Milan, where he assisted five goals in 12 Serie A appearances for the runners-up and was a late substitute in the 3-2 Europa League final loss to Sevilla last month. Moses is now back at Chelsea, frozen out of the first-team picture and in danger of becoming a forgotten man once more. At Liverpool, though, he will forever be recalled as being completely unmemorable.
