Liverpool boss Rodgers full of praise for Gerrard

New Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has praised Reds captain Steven Gerrard, claiming the England skipper is central to everything good about the Anfield club, the Daily Mirror has reported.



Rodgers, the former Swansea City boss who replaced Kenny Dalglish as manager earlier in the summer, said: “[Gerrard is] a great role model for this club, a wonderful inspiration on and off the field. You can see Liverpool is very much in his heart. He really is the soul of this football club.” Rodgers also praised Gerrard’s leadership qualities, adding that while the midfielder does not rant and rave on the field, he instead leads by example.


Gerrard has been at Liverpool his entire career, making his first senior appearance in November 1998 against Blackburn Rovers, a 2-0 Liverpool win in which Gerrard played the final minutes of the match. The 32-year-old made 13 appearances for the club that season, establishing himself fully in the next campaign when his game time increased to 31 matches and his first Liverpool goal, against Sheffield Wednesday in December 1999. Gerrard has gone on to make nearly 600 appearances for Liverpool, scoring almost 150 goals.
