Ranking the Success of Every Liverpool First Team Player Sold or Released Under Jurgen Klopp

These plugins are smart!

After leaving Liverpool in search of regular silverware for Juventus, Emre Can has recently hit the headlines after being left off of I Bianconeri’s Champions League squad for 2019/20.
Can’s the latest former Liverpool player to encounter some difficulties after leaving the club, but how does he compare to the other former first team players who have been moved on over the past few seasons?
Here’s a look at how every Liverpool player sold or released under the reign of Jurgen Klopp has gone on to fare.*

* Excluding Tiago Ilori, João Carlos Teixeira, Jordan Williams and Lawrence Vigouroux who all made less than 10 appearances for Liverpool.
20. Danny Ings, Ryan Kent, Simon Mignolet, Daniel Sturridge, Alberto Moreno

These five all left the club during the most recent summer transfer window, so there is no way to judge how successful they are likely to be. Danny Ings and Ryan Kent both enjoyed decent loan spells with Southampton and Rangers respectively, so they should do well after leaving Liverpool permanently.

19. Lazar Markovic

Lazar Markovic ranks as one of the worst Liverpool signings of the Premier League era and his disastrous time with the Reds finally came to an end when Fulham inexplicably signed him on a free transfer in January. Markovic predictably made one appearance before returning to boyhood club Partizan Belgrade in the summer.

18. Brad Smith

He may be a distant memory at this stage, but Brad Smith was once being tipped as a potential Liverpool star, making 11 appearances at left-back (scoring once!) for the Reds before being shipped off to Bournemouth in 2016. He made 11 appearances for the Cherries and is currently on loan to Seattle Sounders.

17. Danny Ward

Technically, Danny Ward only made three appearances, but his utterly bizarre £12.5m transfer fee makes him a worthy inclusion on this list. Ward left Liverpool in 2018, joining Leicester to become the Foxes’ backup keeper behind Kasper Schmeichel. The Welsh keeper made just five appearances during his debut season and is unlikely to make any strides at the club while Schmeichel is still about.
