The Reds traveled to Australia right after their Premier League season was over, Steven Gerrard put on their shirt to play against Sydney FC, and as he revealed, there were moments during the game, he felt unlucky not to have worked with Jurgen Klopp before leaving the club, moving to LA Galaxy, two years ago.
I was looking around and it was a strange feeling out there. I was thinking if Jurgen Klopp had been at the club a bit earlier what might have been
the Liverpool legend told the Liverpool Echo.
There’s no doubt about it, if he had been here three or four years I believe I would have been part of him delivering big trophies for this club. It’s his aura and the way he is with you, how he makes you feel. I went out there to play in a friendly and I felt like it was the World Cup final. That’s what he gives players
Gerrard said, before indirectly calling any Liverpool target in the coming transfer period not to miss out on the opportunity to play for the Reds.
If I’m a top player around Europe and Jurgen picks the phone up and I get offered the chance to play for this club, which is moving forward in every single department and has a world class manager leading it, I’d be jumping at that opportunity
the former Liverpool captain said.
