Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia is dreaming of a Europa League return to Anfield.

The Finnish centre back became a legend during his time on Merseyside, spending a decade with Liverpool and skippering the side before Steven Gerrard took the armband.

Bayer Leverkusen signed the player on a free transfer in the summer of 2009, and Hyypia has enjoyed a successful spell with the Bundesliga outfit thus far. That said, Liverpool were reportedly keen on bringing the player back to Anfield last summer under Roy Hodgson.

A return to his former stomping ground could be on the cards this term though, with both clubs battling away in the Europa League and searching for qualification to the quarter finals, where a 'dream' draw could be on the cards.

"My big dream is to play Liverpool in the next round. It would be amazing to return to Anfield and play another match there," the defender told the SID news agency.

"There are only big clubs left in the competition now and these games are really exciting."


Leverkusen face a tough task against Villarreal in their tie, whilst Liverpool must beat Braga to progress to the next stage of the competition.

The former Willem II player would undoubtedly receive a fantastic reception were he to return to the club that he holds in such high regard, but Liverpool would be keen not to extend to many gratuities as they chase a realistic trophy this term.
