Steven Gerrard is a legend not only at Liverpool, but also for the England team and has famously turned down transfers to Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and many other big European teams, but should the England and Liverpool skipper leave Liverpool before its too late?
Steven Gerrard, one of the most famous English players ever, and one of the biggest known names in the world of football. Loyal to the club who made him into what he is today, even though having many offers over the 15 years of his career.
Gerrard has turned down offers from Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid, and many more but the most recent being Bayern Munich. Gerrard has never won the league title with Liverpool, but has won many other trophies including the Champions League.
Now lets imagine if he moved to Bayern Munich last year, he would of won the treble, winning the Bundesliga title, the German cup as well as winning the Champions League, again.
Someone of Steven Gerrard's class, who looks likely to beat David Beckham to the most capped outfield player for England, should definitely be playing for a more prestigious club. It's no doubt that Liverpool used to be classed as one of the European's greats, but now they can't even fight for European Football, never mind Champions League.
Gerrard and Suarez no doubt carried Liverpool last season, and with Luis Suarez seeming to be set on leaving Liverpool, and other lower rated teams such as Norwich and Swansea bringing in some great quality players, it looks even more dooming for Liverpool. The signings they've made are far from top quality and it's very unlikely Aspas will be able to reproduce the magic Suarez produced last season.
It seems the only way is down for Liverpool, and it would be better for Steven Gerrard to move now whilst he's still in the prime of his career. He's always going to be classed as a legend at Liverpool for his commitment to the team, and I think Liverpool fans would understand him wanting a change in his career before he ends it, it's not as if he's doing a Michael Owen! Steven Gerrard should transfer soon, he deserves to be playing alongside Mario Gotze and Franck Ribery, not Fabio Borini and Joe Allen.
