Real Madrid Hopes for Steven Gerrard Looks Bleak?

Signing Steven Gerrard has been one of the top priorities for new Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho. However, it looks the Liverpool captain could decide to stay at Anfield, despite the current financial crisis of the club. At least, Liverpool’s new manager Roy Hodgson believes so.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is reportedly happy with the appointment of Roy Hodgson as the replacement of Rafael Benitez who recently joined Inter Milan as the new manager. Hodgson recently talked to Gerrard and revealed that the player could stay, despite Real Madrid’s interest to secure his service.

However, Steven Gerrard is believed to be highly interested to work with Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho who has always been full of praise about Gerrard. The England international even reportedly revealed to his friends that he would have loved to work with Mourinho at Liverpool.

Steven Gerrard played for Liverpool throughout his career so far. He started playing football at the age of 7 at Liverpool youth academy. Having spent 11 years at the youth team, Gerrard started representing Liverpool senior side since 1998 and has so far been with the Merseyside club. As a captain he won the Champions League in 2005.

So, it is natural that Steven Gerrard has an emotional attachment with the club. Now, it remains to be seen if he moves to Real Madrid or stays with the Reds, despite Liverpool’s problems both on and off the field.
