Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool’s  Captain Steven Gerrard was in Ireland this weekend to promote, not the team, but a charity for Autism.

The Anfield legend appeared on Ireland’s longest running chat show ‘The Late late show’ where he talked about his Liverpool career, how he was given his first-team start under Gerrard Houllier at the age of 18.
“It blew me away, making me first team debut under Houllier in front of 40,000 screaming reds.”

“I grew up watching John Barnes, John Aldridge and Robbie Fowler all playing for Liverpool.”

On getting the captaincy of Liverpool FC, Stevie G said to RTE’s Ryan Tubridy: “Sammi Hyppia was disappointed to lose the captaincy but there were no hard feelings, it gave me more responsibility and I came out of my shell more.”

On Istanbul and the infamous winning of the Champion’s League Final, Gerrard said: “I never get bored talking about it, it was a huge fulfillment, we did get a half-time dressing down,
but it was the fans who drove us on to try and win the Final, they never stopped singing and supporting the team to win.”

Finally, Steve Gerrard was asked about the upcoming FA Cup Final against Chelsea at Wembley:
“I am confident, I believe we are gonna win the FA Cup.”
Steven Gerrard’s Golf Tournament for Autism Ireland & the UK will be held at the Druid’s Glen Golf-club on the 6/7th July this year in Wicklow.
