Liverpool statistics






Zak Benjamin Whitbread (born 4 March 1984) is an American footballer who played as a centre-back for Liverpool from 2003 to 2006.

Liverpool careerEdit

Raised in Runcorn, Whitbread was enlisted in the Liverpool F.C. Academy at the age of eight. He rose through the ranks before making his unofficial debut in a pre-season friendly against Thailand in 2003.

On 26 October 2004, Whitbread made his competitive bow for the club, starting in a 3-0 League Cup win at Millwall. The defender played twice more in this competition, and helped the Reds to reach the final, where they lost to Chelsea after extra time.

Whitbread started the 2005-06 season brightly, coming on as a substitute in a Champions League qualifier against TNS. Despite this, the American was used sparingly throughout the campaign, being sent out on loan to Millwall in November 2005.

At the end of the campaign, Millwall signed Whitbread on a permanent deal. The defender spent 14 years making his way through the youth and academy teams, and ended his Liverpool career with 7 appearances.
