Former Liverpool man Jermaine Pennant has revealed how legendary midfielder Steven Gerrard tapped him up in the middle of a match.
Pennant joined the Reds for £6.7million back in 2006 but his move didn’t exactly work out.
However, that move may never have happened if it wasn’t for Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
That is because the forward, who last played for Billericay Town, has revealed that the player attempted to tap him up during the middle of a game.
Speaking about it, the Englishman claimed that Gerrard asked who his agent was during a break in play at a game.
“One of the craziest things that have ever happened to me on a football pitch was being tapped up by Steven Gerrard in the middle of a game,” he explains in his new autobiography, as cited by the Daily Mirror.
“Here was one of my heroes, the captain of Liverpool, the team I grew up supporting as a kid, the team I always wanted to play for, and Gerrard was trying to get the number of my agent during a match!
“I was in the middle of the field, near Gerrard, whom I had never even spoken to before and he said in his thick Scouse accent, ‘All right lad, who’s your agent?’
“I was thinking, ‘What?’ It was crazy. I even said to him, ‘Why? Do you know him?’ I added, ‘Do you need his details? I’ll give you his details!’
“I grew up as a Liverpool fan and it blew my mind.”
