Who is Bobby Duncan?

Bobby Duncan, who is Steven Gerrard’s cousin, joined Liverpool from Man City back in 2018.

Duncan has made a name for himself in recent years both at Man City and for the England youth teams.

Back in 2016, Duncan scored a hat-trick for England’s U16s against Brazil.

Duncan left the Etihad Stadium under a bit of a dark cloud, amid reports of contract disputes with Man City.
