‘I love the man’ – Steven Gerrard admits regret of not playing under Premier League manager


Legendary player for Liverpool and the Premier League Steven Gerrard has stated that he is glad he declined Chelsea’s offer, although he regrets not playing for Jose Mourinho.

Gerrard was drawing interest from teams all over the world after leading the Reds to the Champions League in 2005 and winning man of the match for his performance in the final against AC Milan in Istanbul.

The midfield man reportedly turned down a record-breaking contract offer from Chelsea in order to remain with the Merseyside team.

Gerrard was eligible to play for Liverpool’s opponents in the Premier League.

The CEO of Liverpool, Rick Parry, even went so far as to say that Gerrard had been “lost” to Chelsea, despite the midfielder’s previous willingness to play for Liverpool’s Premier League opponents.

But the England international made a U-turn later on and continued to play for his hometown team until 2015.

Gerrard said of Mourinho on Rio Ferdinand’s FIVE YouTube channel, “I love the manager, I love the man.”

“We’ve been in a distant relationship for a very long time. However, I regret not playing for the coach and the man because I know they would have improved me as a player.

“I am aware that we would have added more medals to my collection of victories.

But now that I’m thinking back, I don’t regret not signing with Chelsea in the slightest. I’m pleased with the choice I made.

Gerrard was not successful in winning the Premier League.

Gerrard went on to win an FA Cup, a League Cup, and a Community Shield while playing for Liverpool. He admits that he would have developed as a player under the Special One and added more medals to his collection if he had decided to transfer to Stamford Bridge.

Among his many accomplishments, the renowned midfielder’s failure to win the Premier League title during his career is conspicuous.

The midfielder’s contributions to Liverpool and his devotion to the team have earned him the admiration of the supporters.

In order to ensure his place in Reds history, he turned down bigger offers and higher salary elsewhere.

Although he was unable to bring home many trophies from Anfield, he was admired by the Liverpool supporters and served as an inspiration to a new generation of players.
