Liverpool ace says title push is for inspirational captain

Jon Flanagan says that he and his Liverpool team-mates are determined to win the Premier League for Steven Gerrard.

The Reds captain is one of English football’s finest ever midfielders, and has enjoyed a glittering career which has included numerous domestic cup wins and the famous Champions League victory in 2005.

But despite his success and ability, the league title has always been out of reach for the Merseyside-born man, who has elected to stay with his boyhood club despite receiving numerous offers to leave in the past.

However this season presents Gerrard with his finest ever shot at the one that has evaded him, with Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool sitting atop the table with just four games to go.

Following Sunday’s win against Manchester City, the Anfielders know that if they maintain a 100% record the top prize will indeed be theirs, and Gerrard’s emotion and desire was there for all to see after the final whistle.

Flanagan – another home grown player who has been starring of late – says that winning the league for is the goal for all of his team-mates and that they all want to help their skipper to get his hands on the trophy:

“It is phenomenal. He has carried this club for years and he deserves this,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.

“I think all the lads are doing it for themselves but for also for Stevie as well.

“We can believe now. All the fans are believing we can do it now and we said in the huddle we’ll go again next week as we’ve done nothing yet and that result has gone now.

“We have to stay focused and go again at Norwich away, we have to keep going right until the end.”
