Toshack is a fantastic striker for both his club and his country. Before joining Liverpool in 1970, he spent five years with Cardiff, scoring 74 goals in 174 games. In his eight years at Anfield, he scored 96 goals and helped the club win three league crowns, two UEFA Cups, and an FA Cup.

John Toshack, a Liverpool icon and former Wales manager, is in urgent care after difficulties with Covid. The 72-year-condition old’s has worsened in the previous few hours, according to respected Basque daily El Diario Vasco, after medics verified he was suffering from “severe pneumonia.” “We express our wishes to our former player John Toshack who has been rushed to hospital,” the Irish Liverpool Reds wrote on Twitter.
“Our John Toshack, admitted in serious condition for Covid,” the Spanish-language Liverpool FC website Esto Es Anfield stated.
