On Wednesday night's Off The Ball, the Irish Independent's Daniel McDonnell explained that he had made some enquiries regarding Finnan's whereabouts.


I did make some enquiries today and Steve Finnan's in London, enjoying life out of the limelight and not seeking any form of post-football fame or media work or anything like that. I believe he's pretty contented and happy about that.

Probably could still do a better job than any of our current full-backs.


Last thing our team needs is another player who goes missing so easily!

Who the fuck's arsed.

The organisers of this event refused to invite the manager of the triumph to take part.


Which makes it all a bit fucking daft and pointless if you ask me.

Steve Finnan: Search over for 'missing' Liverpool defender

Call off the search. Steve Finnan has been found.

The former Liverpool right-back was the only player of the Reds' victorious 2005 Champions League final squad who organisers of next Monday's 10-year anniversary event could not locate.

But after thorough investigative work and with the help of hashtag #FindSteveFinnan on Twitter, the 39-year-old ex-Republic of Ireland international has been found... living in London.

"I can confirm that I'm safe and well," Finnan, who works in property development, told the Liverpool Echo, who led the search. 

"Someone forwarded the Echo article on to me yesterday. I thought it was funny as I normally think I'm pretty easy to get hold of.

"There are people at the club who have got my number but obviously this isn't a club event so there was a bit of a mix-up."

Finnan was a regular in helping Liverpool to the 2005 Champions League final against AC Milan and he played the first half against the Italian side before going off injured at the break with with Liverpool 3-0 down.

The Reds then staged a comeback to level at 3-3 before winning the match after extra-time and penalties.

However, the invite to the sell-out Istanbul Reunion has arrived too late for Finnan.

"I'm leaving on Friday to go travelling around Europe so I'll be away," he said. "Everything has been booked for weeks and it's too late to cancel now.

"It's a shame. If I'd known a few months ago I'd have been there as I would have loved to meet up with all my team-mates and see the fans again."

Finnan made 217 appearances in all for Liverpool, while he also earned 52 caps for the Republic of Ireland. After a brief spell at Espanyol, he ended his career at Portsmouth in 2010.

His last appearance for Pompey was in the 2010 FA Cup final against Chelsea.



Shame he cant make it.

    • Is kelleher fit? With Alison surely going back home for his dad's funeral, we'll be needing the young whipper snapper to play in goals for the next 3 weeks. Can't be fucking doing watching Adrian anymore. 
    • Rafa Benitez feels he has unfinished business at Liverpool and would love to manage the club again one day.   The 60 year-old Spaniard is currently out of work after latest club Dalian Pro in the Chinese SuperLeague in late January.   The well-travelled manager is known as someone who loves a project and Journalist and close confidant Guillem Balague has said that he would love a return to Liverpool although it is not on the cards at this time.   The Echo reported Balague as saying:   “There is a feeling of unfinished business with Rafa and Liverpool, I've always said that.   “Rafa would love to be the Liverpool manager at some point. Maybe in a time of crisis, proper crisis, not what's happening now.   “Maybe in a time where there's a need for a strong personality to steady a ship. But right now in the way that the owners are behaving and Klopp and everything, that situation doesn't exist.   "How can we think that Klopp has reached the end of an era? Look at the bigger picture, how can anyone suggest that?   "It's laughable. It's stupid and absurd to be talking about a future without Klopp."   The issue regarding who will succeed Klopp when the time comes has sprung to life during the last few weeks.   Unsubstantiated rumours a few weeks ago that the German was considering his position due to the significant drop in form by the team turned out to be just that, as it was revealed he was dealing with a personal tragedy with the passing of his mother.   There will come a time when Klopp does decide to walk away from this fantastic team that he built and while it will be a incredibly sad day, there will be no lack of suitors for the role.     The main question is would they look to bring back a manager past or look at someone with progressive Football philosophies.   Benitez unquestionably won the hearts of a lot of Liverpool fans with his ability to connect with the fanbase on and off the pitch and restoring Liverpool’s name as the pre-eminent team in Europe.   He fought the good fight against Liverpool’s rivals, never taking a backward step ruffling plenty of feathers and creating everlasting memories along the way.   His disputes with the owners at the time will go down in Anfield folklore, but his pre-occupation with what was happening off the pitch ended up affecting performances on it and his own judgement when it came to buying and selling players.   It would be harsh to say that Benitez’s best days are behind him, but would he be able to re-invent and alter his pragmatic ways, something that his old sparring partner Jose Mourinho has failed to do?   At this stage it is nothing more than a hypothetical scenario and may very well remain that way.    But like many things in Football, it presents itself as an interesting talking point.

    • The very epitome of negative football; competing only to deny others rather them winning it.
