Sissoko spent two and a half seasons at Anfield after a £10.8m move from Valencia in 2005 and won the FA Cup and Charity Shield during his stay. However, he picked up a serious eye injury against Benfica in the Champions League which hampered his progression in Rafael Benitez’s team.

Fans reiterated their support for the former Reds’ midfielder, with one fan saying that he “loved Momo” and that never wanted a shot on goal to go in as badly as his effort that struck the crossbar against Barcelona in the Champions League.

Loved Momo, I remember his first time effort against Barca in the UCL 2nd leg at Anfield hitting the bar…..to this day I’ve never wanted an shot to go in as much as that one.

A legend. Nearly gave his sight for the club

My fondest memories include that challenge on Ballack in the community shield (and generally dominating that game), his first goal Vs Sunderland and his shot Vs Barca which hit the bar from miles out.
