Liverpool Fans Want To Sign Steven Gerrard So He Can Lift Premier League Title
| Last updated
Some Liverpool fans want the club to bring Steven Gerrard back to the club so that he can lift the Premier League title.
After another slip-up by Manchester City at the weekend, Jurgen Klopp's side are now 22 points clear at the top and need just six wins from 13 games in order to secure their first league title in 30 years.
They can potentially win the league away at rivals Everton or Manchester City in the coming weeks if all goes to plan, though captain Jordan Henderson won't actually get his hands on the trophy until May 9 after the game against Chelsea at Anfield.
And with it now being inevitable that Liverpool are going to win the league, a number of Reds supporters want club legend Gerrard back from his managerial position at Rangers so he can play the required five games and lift the trophy he narrowly missed out on back in 2013/14 as a result of his infamous slip.
It's obviously never going to happen, and to be fair, lots of supporters would much rather him return as manager and win the trophy - but it shows how many are still gutted he never got to win the league despite the team's current success.
Recently, however, Gerrard himself has gone on record to say that Liverpool winning the league will help him move on from one of the darkest days of his career.
"When I analyse it properly, I obviously understand it wasn't just that moment [that cost Liverpool the title], but still part of me in my head thinks it is.
"People say to me to make me feel better: 'It was over 28 games', but I still know behind what you're saying to me that moment was so big.
"Brendan said recently that Jordan Henderson's suspension killed us and it did... an own goal that Kolo Toure scored when we were winning at West Brom and drew the game and lost two points. All little things like that during the season, but it wasn't at that time, that moment against that team, so that's still behind all those people trying to soften it up for me.
"When Liverpool won the Champions League, I was looking around the fans thinking: 'They're all happy again', it made me feel better again. After Madrid, looking around they were all sad again, but the Champions League last year was a healing moment for me.
"I think winning the league would definitely play a part. And I think also my own personal stuff with Rangers, if I go on to have a successful season, I think that will help as well, because that was a f*cking tough moment, even tougher than what people probably think it was. The only time in a 20-year career I've been numb, like my body's felt numb."
