Gerrard ponders Mourinho link-up

Post by Nedved on Wed Nov 07, 2012 6:44 pm

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said he would like to play under Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho.


Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is an admirer of Liverpool's Steven Gerrard
Mourinho is a confirmed admirer of the England captain and his efforts to sign him during his time as Chelsea boss are well documented. He tried and failed on two occasions, and Gerrard recently revealed a third approach came only two years ago when he took charge of Real Madrid.

When asked about the interest from Mourinho when he was Chelsea boss, Gerrard told the Daily Mail in September: "Liverpool weren't really challenging at the time, so there was something to think about.

"But I ended up saying 'no' and a year later I said 'no' again. But he came back when he arrived at Real Madrid two years ago.

"I look at some players who get interest from clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona and they cause absolute wars to get out and get there. But that has never been me and, again, it just wasn't going to happen."

Gerrard is now 32 and highly likely to see out his career at Liverpool, but he still wonders what it would be like to play under Mourinho. "I would like to play for Mourinho, the Special One," he said during a Twitter Q&A.

During the Q&A, Gerrard also revealed Luis Suarez is the best striker he has played with and heaped praise on former Reds star Xabi Alonso - describing the Spaniard as the "best midfielder I've played with. I miss playing with him."

Yeah True. But I wish he had made the shift earlier to partner Alonso. It would have been wonderful. Now I think he is too old - 32 for RM besides we have too many Mid Field players.

When Alonso joined us, Gerrard was around 29, which is still kinda too old.

Plus I think Ozil's a better AM. He's just a more modern AM than Gerrard.
