Gerrard eyes trophy haul

Liverpool - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard believes the club's wait for fresh silverware success could be about to end under Kenny Dalglish.

Anfield great Dalglish, widely regarded as Liverpool's greatest player, returned for a second spell as manager last season after the club headed towards the relegation zone under Roy Hodgson and oversaw an upturn in the Merseysiders's fortunes.

Liverpool's last trophy was the 2006 FA Cup, which England midfielder Gerrard played a key role in bringing to Anfield and the local hero and one-club man, speaking to the Reds' official website, said on Tuesday: "What I can say to the fans is that Liverpool will be back among the trophies sooner rather than later because we are moving in the right direction

"We have got fantastic players, the structure of the club is healthy from top to bottom and when that is the case then the team won't be too far away from winning."

Liverpool haven't won the English title since 1990 and last season saw arch-rivals Manchester United break their domestic record of 19 Championships.

But Gerrard was confident Liverpool would add to their list of league titles.

"We will get the championship again. It's difficult to say when because that adds a lot of pressure to the team."
