Back in the 1995-1996 Premier League season, Steve McManaman assisted 15 Premier League goals for Liverpool. Little did we know at the time that only two players had done so before him and Frank Lampard is the only English player to have done so since.
That campaign remains one of Liverpool’s finest and most overlooked seasons in the Premier League era, one where Steve McManaman was the driving creative force in a side who came much closer to the title than people remember.
In this special episode of ‘Story Behind the Numbers’, brought to you by Think Markets, Official Trading Partner of Liverpool Football Club, Steve McManaman joins Duncan Alexander and Graham Bell to discuss how football in the 1990s was different to the present day, how close-knit that team was and look at his rise to become arguably the most naturally creative English midfield of the 1990s.
