Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has spoken out about former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard.
Gerrard is now in charge of Rangers. And Ferdinand has spoken out about former Liverpool midfielder and now Rangers boss, Gerrard.
“Steven has just grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck in crucial matches and dragged it – in the Champions League semi-finals and finals, in the FA Cup finals,” Ferdinand told Vibe with Five YouTube channel.
“The problem is, I’d like to see how he would have affected the game in a really strong team. In such teams the workload tends to be spread more evenly,” he continued, though.
He recalled: “In his team everything revolved around him, the ball went through him all the time. In the big teams that win championships, the distribution of the game is a bit different. Yes, we had Ronaldo, but we also had Rooney, Tevez.”
“If I buy a ticket for a match, I choose a match with Gerrard for the flashes the others don’t have. He’s capable of changing the game with one rebound or shot on goal. At every training session he did something after which you exclaimed: ‘Wow!’,” said Ferdinand.
“He’s a marvelous player. If he had played for Man Utd, we would have achieved everything – and more,” he praised Gerrard.
