Liverpool CEO Says He Won’t Re-Sign Steven Gerrard to Win a Premier League Medal

Liverpool CEO Says He Won’t Re-Sign Steven Gerrard to Win a Premier League Medal

Liverpool‘s CEO has poured cold water on the slightly bizarre suggestion that Steven Gerrard could be pulled out of retirement to claim a Premier League winner’s medal.

The Reds legend hung-up his playing boots in 2016 having won just about every trophy available to him – except the English Premier League – and will no doubt be there supporting his boyhood club when they eventually claim the title this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s current Liverpool side are a whopping 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League table with just 13 games remaining, and could have their first top-flight championship in 30 years wrapped-up as early as March 21 if results go their way.

Gerrard came close to winning the league in 2014, but never managed it, and the club’s chief executive Peter Moore was asked about the chances of the ex-England captain being re-signed as a player in order to claim a medal during a question and answer session at the Cape Town Official Liverpool Supporters Club in South Africa.

Speaking via Bleacher Report, Moore replied: “Let me explain what would have to happen.

“So the question is, ‘can we bring Steven Gerrard back to get a Premier League medal?’

“And the question I ask you is: which player do you want to cut from the squad to make that happen?

“If you haven’t noticed, he’s the employee of a different football club at the same time as well.

“Look, we all love Stevie G and we’re all very proud of him for his managerial career.

“But I keep seeing this ‘bring him in on a five-day contract so he can win a medal.’

“But it just doesn’t happen that way. Chemistry in a dressing room is important.

“Can you imagine that? That you have to cut a player, to say ‘you’re not going to get a medal’?

“It’s not like they’re handing these things out to everybody, you’ve got a squad, right? And also, you can’t add a player to a squad once it’s locked.

“Other than that, it’s really possible!”

So, there you have it, the current Rangers boss will not be returning to Anfield for an encore any time soon.
