Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard reveals tears not of joy, but of pain
“The reason I was so emotional was because of when this game fell,” the Liverpool captain said. “It wasn’t just because it was a big match in our season; it was because this week is always about more than football for everyone associated with Liverpool. It’s emotional for so many people. Gerrard attended today’s memorial service at Anfield along with his team-mates and has dedicated the victory to the Hillsborough victims and their families. I’m speaking on behalf of everyone when I say the win was dedicated to the victims and families of Hillsborough. All the squad will be present at the service to pay our respects as we should.”
The Reds are to play four games in the Premier League season and Gerrard has urged his side not to drop attention and called for focus ahead of next weekend’s trip to Norwich City. The skipper said that his team would take their coming opponents as the best in the World and would be up for it no matter what.
Petr Cech, the Chelsea number one however felt Liverpool had to cross one final hurdle if they are to win their first Premier League title in 24 years. Chelsea will travel to Anfield two weeks from now and the Blues who are currently two points adrift of the Reds can also upstage the Merseyside giants with a win. The Czech International also believes that the FA should do more to help his side achieve success in Europe in the Champions League.
“In the past few years we have been saying about English coefficient in the Champions League but we never get help from the authorities when it comes to handling fixtures,” Cech said. “The Germans and Italians always play on a Friday. Atletico will play on Friday to make sure that they are ready to keep the glory of the La Liga in the Champions League. Our authorities should also do the same to at least help us getting back to shape.”
In other news, Manchester United is ready to offer Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos a whopping £260,000 a week to secure his services in the summer. Kroos’ future in Bavaria looks uncertain as the German is into the last year of his contract and is yet to open a new deal at the Allianz Arena.
