A FORGOTTEN ex-Liverpool star has stunned fans with his cannon of a throw in the Danish league.
FC Copenhagen’s Kamil Grabara, 24, showed off his impressive distribution in a match against Viborg FF.
After comfortably catching the ball from a corner, the former Liverpool man was able to throw the ball perfectly into the stride of his team-mate just over the halfway line – setting up an instant counter-attack.
Liverpool fans would be forgiven for not remembering Grabara.
The Polish goalkeeper was signed for Jurgen Klopp‘s Reds in 2016 for £250,000 from Polish side Ruch Chorzow.
The stopper never made a competitive senior appearance for the Reds but did appear in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere and in Liverpool’s US pre-season tour in 2018.

While at the club, he was loaned to Championship side Huddersfield where he played 28 times.
He was then sent packing on loan twice to Danish side Aarhus where he got a feel and reputation for playing in the league – this would see him eventually earn a move to FC Copenhagen in 2021 for £3million.
Coincidentally, United were interested in Grabara before he made his switch to Liverpool in 2016.

Fans on social media were impressed by Grabara’s distribution skills with one writing: “Peter Schmeichel style.”
Another wrote: “What was that like 50 yards???”
A third wrote: “That was crazy. And the mask makes it even cooler!”
A fourth fan wrote: “I’m a Copenhagen fan – He has been absolutely amazing. Saved us in the CL qualifiers, and without him we definitely wouldn’t have qualified. He is too good for the Danish league 100%.”
The fee is believed to be around £10m.
