Former English striker and Liverpool striker Roger Hunt has left the world at the age of 83. Hunt nailed 244 goals for Liverpool and leads the club in goals. Hunt also participated in the 1966 FIFA World Cup and won the title with England’s team. Roger also scored three times in the World Cup to guide England’s efforts.
To be the goalscoring catalyst of the Shankly team to achieve promotion then win those precious league titles and the FA Cup puts him in a bracket of LFC legends who are responsible for making us the club we are today. Not only that, he was also a World Cup winner in 1966, too. I am told the Kop christened him 'Sir Roger' for all his achievements. A goalscorer who never stopped working to help his team-mates; I believe he would have fitted well within our current team. So, it is Sir Roger we will remember, honour and pay tribute to over the coming days.
Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager
