  Bernard Diomede brought an end to a disappointing spell with Liverpool when he joined French club Ajaccio in July 2003 after his contract at Anfield expired.

  Diomede arrived at Anfield in the summer of 2000 to become the only member of the Liverpool squad to have won a World Cup winners medal. The dread-locked Frenchman played three times for France during their glorious triumph in 1998. However he failed to settle to the English game and in particular the physical side and was a regular in the reserve team.

  Formerly with Auxerre, where Houllier's good friend Guy Roux nurtured his talents, Diomede tasted success at club level. He made his first team debut at Auxerre as a 19-year old in December 1992 and three seasons later was an integral member of the team that won the French League and Cup double, scoring nine goals in the process.

  A relatively disappointing last two seasons with the French club saw him lose his place in the national side but Gerard Houllier did not hesitate in paying 3 million pounds for him in June 2000.

  He made his Reds debut in the 1-0 UEFA Cup win over Rapid Bucharest in September but his first team opportunities have since been restricted due to unfortunate injury troubles and difficulty adjusting to the pace of the English game. His best moment at Anfield was probably playing in the Premiership against Sunderland, and seeing a spectacular overhead scissor kick being tipped onto the post by Thomas Sorensen. If it had gone in who knows how Diomede's Anfield future would have mapped out?

  He turned down a move to Charlton in July 2002. He spent the second half of the 2002-2003 season on loan with French side Ajaccio before completing the permanent move in July 2003.
