‘Big reveal’: Ben Davies makes Liverpool’s game-time entrance, lifts cover at Anfield exit

Ben Davies spoke about how his lack of playing time at Liverpool affected him and the lessons he learned from his time on Merseyside.

Davies spent eight years at Preston North End with loan time at York City, Tranmere Rovers, Southport, Newport County and Fleetwood Town before joining Liverpool in 2021. The move to Anfield came on the last day of the transfer window.

However, the centre-back did not make a single first-team appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side during his time at the club. Liverpool signed Davies for just £500,000 initially, which they recouped during the 2021 summer transfer window via the loan fee paid by Sheffield United to take the 29-year-old for the 2021/22 campaign.

Davies then left the Reds permanently last summer. The defender joined Rangers in a £4m deal, signing a four-year contract with the Ibrox club.

“When I went to Liverpool I didn’t get a lot of minutes in the team,” Davies revealed. “So when they were putting the team together, doing 30 minutes, 45, 60 and then 90, I was getting five or 10.

“So when I went on loan to Sheffield United and then here, I had to go from having five minutes to having 90 minutes.
