Liverpool star: I’m unlikely to ever win title
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is willing to accept his title dream is over, with only two years left on his contract at Anfield.
He has now turned his attention to leading his side to a Champions League spot, reports the Independent.
The Premier League may only be two games into its season but Liverpool lie ahead of today’s opponents Manchester United.
It has been 23 years since Liverpool have had the bragging rights to call themselves champions of England, and they have not finished in the top five for over four years.
Not since 2002 have Liverpool finished ahead of the Red Devils but Gerrard and the Merseyside club will be hoping that they can maintain their position for as long as possible
“I’m 33, I’ve got two years left on my contract and realistically I’m quite a distance away from winning the League at the moment,” the Liverpool captain said, as reported by the newspaper. “I think a lot of things would have to happen within the next 12 months, the next two years.”
The Liverpool captain has now his sights set on taking his beloved club back into the top four before his time as a professional footballer comes to an end.
Liverpool vs Manchester United
The game today will not only be thought of as a fierce duel between two great clubs but will be significant because 100 years ago on September 2, 1913 a true Liverpool legend was born.
Bill Shankly, a man who took the Reds to three Division 1 championships, one Division 2 title, two FA Cup trophies, and one UEFA Cup, will always be remembered as an all-time great.
Their fierce rivals United, who travel to Anfield today, will be hoping to break manager David Moyes’ ‘duck’ at the home of Liverpool.
Moyes failed to win at Anfield in 12 league and cup games as Everton manager, drawing seven and losing five.
The Manchester club are without Wayne Rooney, as he had to have 10 stitches on his head after a knock in training.
