Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has brushed off claims from Manchester City executive Patrick Vieira that young English players don’t care enough about playing for the Three Lions.

Gerrard gave a withering response to being informed of Vieira’s words, claiming that the former Arsenal captain’s views were of no concern to him.

“It didn’t annoy me because I don’t really care what Vieira says – the young players are hungry,” the England captain said.

The Anfield legend was speaking ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier against Poland on Tuesday night when he knocked back Vieira’s claims, and Roy Hodgson’s team will need all their commitment if they are to pick up a victory in Warsaw.

Poland currently sit three points behind in England in Group H of the European region of Wrodl Cup qualification, but they have a game in hand and a win for Gerrard’s side will put them in control of the group.

Wins have been hard to come by at Liverpool, though and Gerrard will be hoping to go into Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Reading on a positive note.
