Steven Gerrard: Viral video claims Liverpool legend was the perfect midfielder

Steven Gerrard had no weaknesses on the football pitch

Steven Gerrard had a remarkable career as a professional footballer.

The Englishman made his debut for Liverpool in 1998 at the age of just 18.

He went on to play 710 times for his boyhood club over the next 17 years, scoring 185 times.

Gerrard joined LA Galaxy in 2015, where he played 39 times before deciding to hang up his boots.

The Liverpool legend was one of the best midfielders of his generation.

He didn’t have many weaknesses to his game at all. He scored and set up goals, had an incredible array of passing, could control a game, had energy in abundance and could contribute in defence.
