Cape Town - Liverpool
manager Brendan Rodgers admits that Steven Gerrard takes professionalism
to a new level.
According to the clubs official website, Rodgers reveals
that Gerrard’s impact should never be understated.
"As a player he is immense and the influence he has on
games should never be understated. At times he has carried this club on his
back and in my time here he has always shown the ability that has rightly seen
him be regarded as one of the world's best for well over a decade.
"As a leader and as a man, he is probably incomparable
to anyone I have ever worked with.
"He takes professionalism to a new level and the dedication
he has to his work is an example to everyone in the game.
"He is also someone who has always put the club and
team ahead of himself and I think that will ultimately be his legacy.
"People better placed than me to judge have said Steven
is Liverpool's greatest ever player; when you look at the company he is in,
that is some statement.”
