Steven Gerrard has spoken of his desire to win the Premier League before he retires but has conceded that he may leave the game without achieving that dream.
Reported by The Sun,
“Hopefully before I hang my boots up I can realize the dream of winning it – I’m also realistic as well. I don’t think we’re miles away.
“Of course we have to be realistic, we finished eighth in the league last year but we got to two major cup finals which show we can compete with anyone on our day. If we find a better level of consistency we can find ourselves higher up the table than last year.”
Liverpool, although one of the most decorated teams in English history, have failed to win the League for 22 years meaning they have never won the Premier League since it was created in 1992. They have recently had to sit back and watch as their fierce rivals, Manchester United, surpassed them as the team with the most league wins in England – Liverpool with 18 and United now with 19.
But Gerrard, who has tasted glory with his club at European Level, remains hopeful that this could be their – and his – season. Brendan Rodgers, who arrived earlier this summer, has the team playing a smoother passing game that he introduce to Swansea in his time their and the 32-year-old midfielder is optimistic that this style could introduce a new era for his club:
“He has more of a continental style and wants to keep the ball more. Let’s hope there is a bright future around the corner.”
