Saluting The Old Kaiser Of Anfield

Over the past month the entire world has turned its eyes towards Germany - a country that has thrown off its stereotypes and welcomed the world, albeit in the shape of 32 teams, and in return has found itself completely embraced.

With the exception of Bert Trautmann and Jurgen Klinsmann there have been few imports from that country to have been cherished in the British game. Ask many football fans and they won't even think of Dietmar Hamann if asked to name the most influential German player to ply his trade on these shores. Though that wouldn't be true of Liverpool fans. Or indeed those of Newcastle United. Nor his teammates at either club who all realise The Kaiser's true worth.

Gerard Houllier broke the club's transfer record to land the midfielder back in 1999. Hindsight is always 20/20 but even with its benefit seven years on you can see it was £8million well spent.
