Brendan Rodgers joined Liverpool to replace Kenny Dalglish as manager in 2012. The Irishman nearly led the Reds to an English Premier League triumph during the 2013-14 season.

Rogers struggled during the subsequent seasons, however, and was replaced by Jurgen Klopp in October 2015. The current Leicester City manager signed 33 players during his time at Anfield for a collective fee of around £296 million (via LfcHistory.Net). Some of the players signed by Rogers are still playing a key role at Anfield.

His versatility and leadership skills have played a key role in the Reds’ success in recent years. English newspaper “The Telegraph” named Milner in their list of “The top 20 most under-rated footballers of all time” in 2020.The 36-year-old midfielder’s previous contract at Anfield was set to expire at the end of this month. However, the former England international recently signed a new deal, which will keep him at the club until the end of next season.

Joe Gomez

Joe Gomez arrived at Liverpool from Charlton Athletic during the same transfer window as Milner and Firmino. The English defender has played 87 Premier League games for the Reds thus far, managing to keep 33 clean sheets in the process.

The England international has struggled with injuries in recent years, managing to make just 15 appearances in the Premier League in the last two seasons. His unavailability pushed him down the pecking order as Jurgen Klopp prefers to start Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, and Ibrahima Konate ahead of him.

However, at 25, Gomez is at the peak of his career and could play a key role for the Reds in the upcoming years. According to “The Daily Mail,” the Reds are looking to offer him a new contract.
