Bruce, Salah, Mane in Best X1

The Herald

LONDON. — After 30 years of near misses, some dark days and even mid-table finishes, Liverpool will finally be handed the Premiership trophy at Anfield today, ending the club’s lengthy wait to be champions of England again.

Legends were born, and new names added to Anfield folklore, but which of the current crop would now make it into Liverpool’s All-Time XI? BBC Sport has selected a long list of contenders and they include three African stars — Bruce Grobbelaar (Zimbabwe), Sadio Mane (Senegal) and Mohamed Salah (Egypt).
