Goodbye to reds legend

One of Liverpool’s finest ever overseas players, Sami Hyypia, will be leaving Anfield this summer to move to new pastures.

The former reds captain, who joined 10 years ago this month has passed a medical today with Bayer Leverkusen and will join the German side this summer on a two year deal. Sami’s contract was due to expire this summer.

The Finn signed for the reds for only £2.5 million and was a stalwart of the side not only during Houllier’s reign but the beginning of Benitez’ Anfield era.

With 463 appearances, Sami is 20th in Liverpool’s history of all time appearances for the club.

Nobody can deny that Sami still has a lot to offer on the football pitch and we would like to wish this magnificent Liverpool servant all the best in his future career.

  1. It was shocking when i head Sami was leaving. But there is nothing more we can do but but i don’t think he is not gonna come back to Anfield. I think he is just going for holidays at Leverkusen for the next two years and return to the coaching staff. Wish we all the best…SAMI…You are a true legend and will be remembered many years to come.

  2. I think Big Sami could definitley played for us for another 2 seasons as a bench stop gap player, but it is time for Agger and Skrtl. Sami definitely has been a Legend for the Reds, and probably one of our ever finest buys, (value for money wise). A credit to himself and the club over the last decade, a true Pro. I can understand him wanting to now play regualr football, and all the very best to him and his family, and hope to see him back at Anfield in a coaching capacity in the not too distant future.

  3. Fantastic Sammy….you will always be remembered as the steely cooled defender of the Club. All the best to you with your new club!

  4. Our family love you Sammi – thanks for all of the joy you`ve given us. When you are on the pitch for LFC we know the team has heart. Good luck in the future – any team should be proud of you.

    Keep heading them in – but not against us!

  5. One of the best to wear the RED jersey & an absolute gentleman on the field!

    I’m just wondering who’s going to score all our headed goals now because I believe Sammy was 1 of the best where defenders are concerned, especially in Europe!!!

    Best wishes with your new club:-)


  6. Im sad to see Sami leaving but to be honest i always expected him to leave at the end of this season, its the right thing to do if he still wants to play regularly.
    Sami is a true reds legend and i hope he comes back one day in a coaching role.
    Good luck at Bayer Leverkusen, i’ll be keeping an eye on them next season!
    Sami, one of the all time greats.

  7. I thank Sammi for all he has done for
    LFC in the past , and it is very sad
    to see such a great LFC legend
    leave……. Mad love for Sammi.

  8. All the very best Sami lad
    Thanks for the last ten years
    Gutted you are going as I think you still had a role to play at Anfield


  9. I love big Sami but given his obvious desire to continue playing regularly it was the right move to re-sign Agger and let Sami go. I hope we’ll see the big man back at Anfield at some stage in a coaching capacity as his attitude was fantastic.

  10. A true Reds legend. He will be missed sorely. I wish they signed him on for another year or two 🙁

    Sami you will forever be welcome at the doors of Anfield.
