Sami Hyypia on Liverpool, Benitez and coaching in Germany

Use accessible player and disable flyout menus


Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia says life as a player is "easy" compared with his current role coaching German side Bayer Leverkusen.


The Finn played for Leverkusen after leaving Liverpool in 2009, and moved into coaching the club last year - sharing duties with Sascha Lewandowski as Hyypia does not have his licence yet.


The 39-year-old reflects on his time at Anfield with "joy" and says he learnt the most from former Reds manager Rafael Benitez.

I watched Leverkusen against Gladbach last month on a trip to Cologne and Sami's team were outstanding. Pacy, inventive but needed leadership at the back and in the end it was a cracking 3-3 draw. All the way through it kept occuring to me they needed Sami to get his boots on


Oh and Schurrle was head and shoulders above everyone else

Has now taken full control at Leverkusen

Not forgetting that Bayer's sporting director Rudi Voller had this to say last month: "Sami has all the ingredients to become a great coach," Voller told Sky Deutschland when asked about first-year manager Sami Hyypia. "The only problem is that at some point he will go to Liverpool. This is his dream."

Sami is such an immovable, iron character that its hard to imagine him having dreams. That he's made it clear that his dream is to manage Liverpool I find only makes me love him more. Genuinely one of my favourite players of all time.


If only we had him now - we'd probably be in the CL.
