Published 4 Comments

Dietmar Hamann scored a trademark rocket for Liverpool Masters against their Manchester United counterparts at Singapore’s National Stadium on Saturday.

The 42-year-old, who played for Liverpool between 1999-2006, picked the ball up from 30 yards and blasted an unstoppable pile-driver into the bottom corner of the net past United goalkeeper Nick Culkin. (Scroll down this page to watch Hamann’s screamer).

Hamann’s goal ensured a 2-0 victory for Liverpool, who took the lead earlier in the match through Spaniard Luis Garcia.

Hamann recently raised a few eyebrows after advising Jurgen Klopp not to re-sign Steven Gerrard on a temporary loan deal.
