The most formidable was Steven Gerrard...The former Chelsea midfielder is a great admirer of the versatile midfielder Uncategorized

Born in Liverpool, former England midfielder Steven Gerrard played exclusively for Liverpool until he moved to the United States in 2015.With a total of 186 goals and 157 assists in 710 games for Anfield, Gerrard’s name is etched in records and memories as a legend.

The central midfielder was converted into a defensive midfielder towards the end of his career and came close to winning the Premier League under Brendan Rodgers. In the Champions League, he was a key player in the Miracle in Istanbul, leading his team to the crown.

He was recognized as one of the leading midfielders in England and the world, but former Nigerian midfielder John Obi Mikel, who played for Chelsea during his playing days, said that he was the biggest challenge for him.

“I’ve always said my toughest opponent in the Premier League was Stevie G,”

“You remember when he started playing as a No.10 for Liverpool, with Fernando Torres up front? Oh my God!”

“Quick, technically very good, strong, powerful, he could tackle as well. You’re looking at a No.10 who could tackle! I know he didn’t play in that position for very long, but he was the guy who was very, very difficult to play against. He knew how to find the space in between you and the defenders. “

“Yeah, for me, Stevie G was the guy, he was that good.”
