Steven Gerrard has handed in two transfer requests to his supposed beloved club, with the intention of joining Chelsea and winning the title with them.
Gerrard was just 9-years-old when Liverpool last won the title and despite claiming it is ‘their year’ for pretty much every season since, they have failed to even put up much of a title challenge since their last win in 1990.
Gerrard has today admitted he is jealous of Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville, who have lifted the trophy for the past two seasons.
“I know I’ve had a decent career and done well so far, but I still have so many ambitions,” said Gerrard. “When I see Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs lifting the Premier League trophy over their head and I haven’t got it, I want it bad. It is going to be one of the most exciting title races in years. The other teams below the so-called top four are taking points off the top four. No one is running away with it. The last three or four years have become a two-horse race in November and December but it is anyone’s title at the moment. We are happy where we are. We are disappointed we haven’t got a bit of a cushion but it has been a long time since we have been able to say Liverpool are top of the League in December!”
