This article celebrates the African players to have passed through Liverpool’s doors. This feature ranks the top 10 of the continent’s stars to have played for the Merseyside club.

Admittedly, over the years, there has been a lot of dross. Gerard Houllier and Rafael Benitez were guilty of numerous speculative transfers and both oversaw a huge turnover of unfulfilled talent.

Needless to say, the likes of Damien Plessis, Nabil El-Zhar and Charles Itandje haven’t made the cut.

Similarly, recent failures such as Victor Moses and Oussama Assaidi have also missed out.

In compiling this list, we have considered the impact, popularity, contribution and longevity of players both at Liverpool and in their careers beyond Anfield. Thus, while some of these players may not have shined on Merseyside, they are acknowledged in this feature on the basis of their careers as a whole.
