The skipper was abused by a man who broke into the training ground.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard had to be physically restrained after a man broke into the club’s training ground and verbally abused the midfielder, reports the Daily Mail.
The incident has led to the Reds questioning whether security should be increased at the Melwood complex, as the man scaled a fence to get into the facility.
Gerrard was subjected to death threats during the attack, as well as being told the man would burn down the 33-year-old’s house and kill the player’s family.
Assistant manager Colin Pascoe had to restrain the skipper as kit-man Lee Radcliffe ran to confront the intruder – who rode away on a bike as Radcliffe approached.
Gerrard was training with team-mates Philippe Coutinho and Simon Mignolet ahead of the Merseyside club’s Premier League clash with Swansea City on Monday night.
With the help of the Englishman the side sit top of the table currently, despite having played one game fewer than their nearest rivals.
This is because Brendan Rodgers’ side are the only team with a 100% record in the division, having triumphed over Stoke City, Aston Villa and Manchester United.
Gerrard has been a huge part of this success and also helped England to a win over Moldova and a draw with Ukraine during the recent World Cup qualifiers.
The midfield ace is still a key part of the team despite the player entering the twilight years of an extremely decorated career.
