  • - A momentous occasion at Anfield when Sami Hyypia said a tearful goodbye in front of the Kop. He came on wearing the captain's armband for his final five minutes. Hyypia then broke down before being held aloft by his teammates as the Kop sang his name.

    "I am really pleased for him but a little bit sad because we're losing a fantastic professional, a good player and a good person too," said Benitez.

    "I told him before the game I wanted to wait until the last minute, but the fans were pushing. At the end it was better because he almost scored.

    "I was thinking about him coming on in the last minute and all the fans applauding him until the end. It has been 10 years and he's an idol here with the fans. Everyone loves him because he's been so good."
