Liverpool’s long-serving captain Steven Gerrard admits he’s hurt by his long-running failure to win a Premier League title. The England international finished runners-up in the table last season, which is the closest he will ever get to sealing the division crown, and the midfielder said it’s his biggest regret, reports BBC Sport.
Last season, Liverpool looked to be on their way to the Premier League title, with Brendan Rodgers side going on an incredible ruin of victories at the tail-end of the season, but defeat to Chelsea at Anfield in the spring, and throwing away a 3-0 lead away to Crystal Palace sealed their fate. Liverpool finished just two points behind Manchester City in the Premier League table in 2013/14, and know they below their best chance of finish at the summit.
It was Gerrard’s error against Chelsea that lead to Liverpool to lose against the Blues, and he will always carry some blame for their failure, despite turning in an outstanding performance over the course of the campaign. He announced his intention to leave the club earlier this season, while hinting that the negotiation process could have been handed a lot better, but will leave with some regret for the side’s failure to win the title.
It is not the only regret, I think it is the biggest. I would love to say that I have got the full collection, it would be the icing on the cake. You are always going to have incredible moments and you are also going to have some cruel lows as well. Nobody’s journey ever goes smoothly, mine certainly hasn’t, but I am certainly proud of it and I wouldn’t change it for anything,” he said.
