After being plagued by hamstring problems for three years Norwegian defender Vegard Heggem left Anfield for pastures new in July 2003 when his contract at the club expired.
The first signing of Roy Evans and Gerard Houllier in their roles as joint managers in the summer of 1998, it didn't take Vegard Heggem long to impress the Liverpool supporters with his consistent and exciting attacking displays.

The Norwegian international had passed up the chance of Champions League football with Rosenborg to join Liverpool for £3.5 million, and he held off the challenge of Bjorn Tore Kvarme, Steve Harkness and Jason McAteer to make the right back slot his own.

Equally comfortable at right back or on the right side of midfield, Heggem's high-energy performances, with an ability to attack as well as defend, made him a vital member of the squad, and ability to score spectacular goals as efforts against Middlesbrough and Bradford City live long in the memory.

However, a series of hamstring injuries severely disrupted his Anfield career and his final appearance for Liverpool was against Derby County at Pride Park in October 2000.

Despite a series of comebacks with the reserve team the hamstring problems continued to haunt him, and he is now set to move back to Norway.
