The midfielder made 86 appearances for the Merseyside club during his time there, scoring just one goal and getting just one assist (per TransferMarkt). Despite not having an amazing record at Anfield in terms of scoring or assisting goals, a lot of Liverpool fans still felt the need to tweet their appreciation for the former Red.
Actually wept when you got kicked in the eye against Benfica ? Still came back as a unit ? All the best Momo and enjoy you’re retirement ???????#ynwa

What a guy! I loved his tenacity and passion and will never forget how instrumental he was in midfield. That eye injury was such a tragedy and I’m glad it didn’t do worse damage. Always dear to our hearts, YNWA Momo

What do we think?
It’s heartwarming to see so many Liverpool fans take the time to send their best wishes and appreciation for their former midfielder. This goes to show that he is still well-liked on the red side of Merseyside despite leaving the club in 2008 (per TransferMarkt).
