Jan Molby was a legend at Liverpool and played at the club from 1984 to 1996, making more than 211 appearances in the red and white. At the Reds, he won two league titles, two FA Cups and three Charity Shields. Before joining Liverpool, Molby played at Ajax alongside Johan Cruyff.
During the interview, I asked Jan several questions about topics including:
- Why Liverpool is in such poor and inconsistent form this season,
- What it was like to play alongside Johan Cruyff,
- His memories of the first Liverpool FC match he played,
- Whether he sees parallels between the way that Ajax played and how Arsenal play now,
- His memories of that wonderful goal for Liverpool against Manchester United in the 1985 Milk Cup,
- The rivalry between Denmark and Holland – who will be facing each other in World Cup 2010,
- Favorite memories of Kenny Dalglish,
- And much more.
