Steven Gerrard opened up with former England teammate and Manchester United rival Rio Ferdinand and admitted he regrets never playing for Jose Mourinho.
In the BT Sport interview that went over many of the major moments in Gerrard’s career at Liverpool, the former Premier League star admitted that he regrets that he never played for Mourinho.
“I have regrets for not playing for the man and the coach because I know he would have made me a better player,” Gerrard said. “I know he would have had more trophies to what I’ve already won. But looking back now I have no regrets not signing for Chelsea.
“I don’t regret it at all. I’m happy with the decisions I made. The connection I’ve got with Liverpool, my home town club. I’ve probably underachieved at times in certain years with Liverpool but for me it is not all about winning trophies. It’s also about memories and love and what those memories meant. Winning four or five trophies with Liverpool means an awful lot more than winning 10 or 11 with Chelsea.”
Gerrard also recalls the famous slip he had against Chelsea, which caused Demba Ba to score and take Liverpool out of title contention. He admits that “there’s not a day that goes by goes by that (he) doesn’t think about if that hadn’t happened.”
There are always a lot of what-if’s in a career, and Gerrard definitely has a lot, but overall seems to be pleased with his Premier League career. On to the next one Gerrard… aka the LA Galaxy.
