Liverpool legend believes captain’s loyalty will make title even more special

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has claimed that winning the title once will be more special than winning it six times with another club for captain Steven Gerrard, as reported by talkSPORT.

The Reds are top of the Premier League going into another crucial weekend and face West Ham at Upton Park tomorrow, after their title rivals have already played.

Gerrard had numerous opportunities to leave Anfield, with Chelsea twice coming in for him, however the England captains loyalty stayed strong despite Liverpool missing out on Champions League football for the last few years.

Liverpool have gone 24 years without a title but Carragher feels winning it once for Gerrard would be the pinnacle of his impressive career.

“Steven Gerrard is probably the greatest player not to have won the Premier League title,” Carragher said.

“There are lots of players down the years who have won it who couldn’t lace his boots. He’s been loyal to Liverpool. He could have moved two or three times, had more honours and maybe even won the title.

“Winning it at Liverpool would be like winning it five or six times at another club though. That’s how much it means [to him].”
