Steven Gerrard presented with the Legend of Football Award
On Monday evening, Steven Gerrard received another award following a glittering career in professional football.
The former Liverpool captain was presented with the Legend of Football Award.
In the crowd, were plenty of Gerrard’s former team mates including Jamie Carragher, Xabi Alonso and Sami Hyypia.
“The greatest performance you will ever see in a European Cup final”
Former Liverpool boss Gerard Houllier also made an appearance.
Carragher and Xabi Alonso both spoke publicly and were effusive in their praise for Gerrard.
The former Liverpool defender said: “I think Steven Gerrard gave the greatest performance you will ever see in a European Cup final.”
Carragher was of course referring to Istanbul in 2005, when Liverpool came from 3-0 down against AC Milan to win the Champions League.
Xabi Alonso’s brutal answer to Jamie Carragher
An amusing video has emerged from the Legend of Football Award.
It features Jamie Carragher and Xabi Alonso.
Carragher is now better known as a pundit on Sky Sports. With his sparring with Gary Neville now somewhat legendary.
Whilst Xabi Alonso retired at the end of last season following excellent spells with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, after leaving Liverpool.
Last week, Alonso announced he would move into coaching, which is sure to alert Liverpool fans.
Could we one day see a Steven Gerrard-Xabi Alonso managerial dream team at Anfield?
Carragher: “Am I a legend?”
On the clip below, Carragher hails Alonso before asking the Spain World Cup winning midfielder whether he is a legend also.
Xabi Alonso’s answer is both stylish and very amusing…
After the international break, Liverpool return to Premier League action with a belter: Manchester United at Anfield.
