In detail

Having received his first break in 1971 from the great Bill Shankly, Phil Thompson was originally a midfielder who was brought through the ranks and made his debut in 1972 at Old Trafford. He was a new breed of centre back for the Reds who played his way out of any trouble rather than just powering headers away. He went on to captain the team and one of his proudest moments was when he lifted the European Cup after Liverpool beat Real Madrid in Paris. He also played for England and was the national team captain. After 477 appearances for the club he left Anfield for a short time at Sheffield United, but he returned a year later when Kenny Dalglish appointed him the reserve team manager. He took up a new role at Anfield in 1998 when he was appointed Assistant Manager to Gérard Houllier and also had a spell in charge of the first team in 2001.
