Gerrard: Comments were harsh

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has backtracked on his claims that Everton play like Stoke, admitting he went too far with his comments.

The England midfielder spoke immediately after Sunday's controversial 2-2 draw at Goodison Park, where Luis Suarez had an added-time goal wrongly ruled out for offside.

Emotions were running high in the aftermath and Gerrard accepts he overstepped the mark with his opinion. "Just to clarify I've watched the game again, and I've seen some of Everton's matches this season, and what I said in relation to their style of play went too far," he told the Liverpool Echo.
