The name Djimi Traore still resonates with Liverpool supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern and a video circulating around the bar shows he’s still got it, whatever that was.
Traore enjoyed previous prestige in the Champions League as the 33-year-old was part of the 2005 Liverpool side that proved victorious in Istanbul and he seems to take a fancy to the competition format as he hit a stunning 30-yard effort last night in the CONCACAF version of the tournament.
Traore is rather infamous with Liverpool fans and neutrals alike at the bar for his comedy own goal that cost the Reds a place in the 2005 FA Cup against lower league Burnley.
He made himself a hero for his current side Seattle Sounders after smashing an unstoppable shot into the top corner to take his team level on aggregate with Mexican side Tigres in last night’s CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final second leg. The Sounders went onto win the tie 3-2 thanks to a late Eddie Johnson goal and Traore was hailed as the most unlikeliest of heroes.
