No. 36 Ronny Rosenthal

Striker grew up in Maccabi Haifa and went on to wear the red shirt of Liverpool FC.

For three months in 1990, Ronny Rosenthal was the darling of the Kop - one of the most revered players to wear the red shirt of that season's English league champion Liverpool FC. Rosenthal grew up at Maccabi Haifa and first found local fame when in Shlomo Sharf's Haifa team which won two league titles in a row in the mid -'80s. Riding on his success Rosenthal moved to Europe and did well at Belgian team Bruge and then impressed Liverpool's scouts while in England on a trial at Luton Town in 1990. Liverpool snapped the striker up on loan from Standard Liege and he repaid the favor by scoring on his debut as a substitute and then grabbing a classic hatrick on his full debut against Charlton. The 27-year-old Rosenthal scored seven goals in eight matches, helping Kenny Dalglish's team win the First Division title, the last of Liverpool's record 18 league wins. Unfortunately for Ronny that was the end of his highs at Anfield. Liverpool bought Rosenthal from Liege but he was given few opportunities to play for the first team in the following years. In 1994 Rosenthal moved to Tottenham Hotspur where he made 100 appearances but could not bring Spurs the league title. On Sunday: A shooting guard who spurned the NBA
