Liverpool stopper desperate to win the league for skipper

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet wants to win the Premier League this season for captain Steven Gerrard, as reported by talkSPORT.

The Reds are just one point behind leaders Chelsea going into a vital weekend, but Manchester City still have two games in hand behind them.

Champions League football is set to finally return to Anfield next season but that is not enough for summer signing Mignolet.

The Belgian ‘keeper believes that Gerrard deserves to win the title at least once in his career after being so loyal and respectful of the club he supports as well as one of the country’s best.

“With everything he has achieved throughout his career [he deserves to win the Premier League],” Mignolet said.

“He has led by example throughout the years. He’s a very good player and also, off the pitch, he supports every single individual in the dressing room.

“Everybody talks about [winning the title] but he just stays the same person and that’s all credit to him.”
