Liverpool pay tribute to 2000-01 treble hero Gerard Houllier


Liverpool have paid tribute to their former manager Gerard Houllier after he passed away at the age of 73

Houllier guided the Reds to the cup treble of FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup in 2001 and was one of the most successful bosses in their history.

The Frenchman joined the Reds initially as a joint-manager alongside Roy Evans in the summer of 1998, but when that partnership was swiftly ended he took over the reins on a permanent basis.

As well as that treble success in 2001, Houllier also guided Liverpool to the League Cup again in 2003, and is credited with nurturing the careers of the likes of Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Michael Owen.

Liverpool Football Club wrote on their Twitter account : "We are mourning the passing of our treble-winning manager, Gerard Houllier.

"The thoughts of everyone at Liverpool Football Club are with Gerard’s family and many friends. Rest in peace, Gerard Houllier 1947-2020."
