Suddenly, things are happening at
Liverpool. Instead of all the frustrations about financial conditions or rumors about top players leaving the club, it seems that Roy Hodgson is changing things. Steven Gerrard has decided to stay at the club and believes that with the new coach, things may become better for the club.
Steven Gerrard is slowly turning into a legend for
Liverpool. He is the captain of the club and at the age of 30, he is matured and in the peak of his form. Real was interested to buy him and was ready to spend big money for the player. However, Gerrard has very frankly stated that he was going nowhere. Madrid
Steven Gerrard said, “I made it clear that I simply needed to concentrate on the World Cup and then have a decent holiday with my family. I wanted the chance to meet Roy Hodgson privately and having done so, I'm very impressed with his plans for the future.
I've only returned to training at Melwood with some of the other World Cup players, but I can't wait for the new season to start.
I know Joe well through the
England set-up so it will be fantastic to play alongside him in a red shirt for Liverpool."
Naturally coach Roy Hodgson is delighted with this news. If Gerrard had left the club for Real Madrid then surely it would have been very difficult for Hodgson to find a replacement for him. The arrival of Joe Cole has perhaps helped Gerrard to make up his mind.
Things have started to brighten up for
Liverpool. In just two days, they had two good news.
