The statement from the club reads: “The thoughts and support of everyone at Liverpool FC are with our legendary former captain Alan Hansen, who is currently seriously ill in hospital. A defender of the utmost elegance, Hansen’s outstanding raft of honours across a 14-year spell with the Reds – he joined from Partick Thistle in 1977 – included eight league titles, three European Cups, two FA Cups and three League Cups. ‘Jocky,’ as he was known by teammates, is in the top 10 for all-time appearances for the club having played 620 matches, and the Scottish centre-back also served as Liverpool skipper for four seasons. The club is currently in contact with Alan’s family to provide our support at this difficult time, and our thoughts, wishes and hopes are with Alan and all of the Hansen family. We will provide any further updates as we receive them in due course, and we request that the Hansen family’s privacy is respected at this time.”

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher also expressed his concern, sending a fingers crossed and a heart emoji in response to the statement.

Hansen’s former teammate John Aldridge shared his support: “All our thoughts as ex-LFC players are with Alan (Jockey) Hansen and his family. Let’s hope he can pull through his illness.”

Other notable football figures, including John Terry, Virgil van Dijk, and Jordan Henderson, sent heart emojis in response to the club’s message, showing their solidarity and support for Hansen during this challenging time.
