Babbel: Red love helped me recover

Markus Babbel has spoken out about how friends from the club helped him recover after being struck down with Guillain-Barre syndrome.

The Liverpool defender hasn't kicked a ball in anger since August last year and at one point couldn't walk such was a seriousness of his illness but the German could be in line for an emotional return on the final day of the season. The German defender insists that throughout his illness, Liverpool Football Club never forgot him.

"Some colleagues from Liverpool, including Phil Thompson, came out to see me when I was in hospital," reveals Babbel. "They told me that I was an important member of the club and one of the reasons we won three trophies and that they were looking forward to my return.

"Phil told me that the club will not forget me and that as far as they are concerned, I can have as much time off as nessecary in order to get fit again. It meant a lot to me."
