Djimi Traore’s time at Liverpool is remembered most fondly by opposition fans, mainly due to his calamitous own goal against Burnley in the FA Cup but he now has something special to add to his highlight reel.

The former Mali international has been something of a journeyman since he departed Anfield following a mixed spell there.

Owing to his penchant for howlers in defence, it is easy to forget that Traore won an FA Cup and League Cup winners medal for Liverpool, as well as playing the entirety of there triumphant Champions League final in 2005.

Traore has played for as many as eight different clubs during the seven years since he left Liverpool.

The 33-year-old joined Seattle Sounders of MLS in January and announced himself on the scene with a quite incredible goal.

Playing against Tigres UANL in the CONCACAF Champions League, Seattle had equalised just seven minutes before Traore picked up a bouncing ball 35 yards out and sent an unstoppable left-foot shot crashing in off the underside of the crossbar.

It was only the third goal of Traore’s career but, oh my, was it a special one.

Take a look at it above.
