Stevie Gerrard: I wish I could've played for Klopp at Liverpool

As one of the club's greatest ever players, and widely regarded as one of the best midfielders to ever grace the game, Steven Gerrard has had some career.

However, despite winning pretty much everything during his career, the Premier League was always the one that eluded him as a player.

Having played under Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson, Kenny Dalglish and Brendan Rodgers, the former LFC captain has gone from the sublime to the ridiculous.

But it was under Brendan Rodgers that Gerrard thought he would've won a title, had he come at a time when the Rangers boss was at the peak of his powers.

Today though, Gerrard has spoken about our current manager, Jurgen Klopp. He reckons he'd have had the best time of his career under Jurgen, and it's quite hard to disagree.

Gerrard (via the Liverpool Echo) said: "I’ve had many sit-downs with him. He’s an open book – he invites me into his office – I’m incredibly lucky and blessed I do get that invite.

"And the thing I take away is: Imagine playing for him. I wasn’t lucky enough to play for Jürgen Klopp. Probably too old. Just missed the boat if you like. But, I’m almost jealous of the Liverpool players.

"I come out of his office after a sit-down, and when I walk out of the training ground, I actually want to walk back in and sit with him.

"I want to put a kit on and play for them, and run for them and run hard. He’s infectious, he inspires you."

The former captain had not long departed the club (as player) before Jurgen Klopp took over but there's not doubt a peak Gerrard would've been loved by our manager.
