Liverpool legend Terry McDermott has said that the performances displayed by the Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard at the Euro 2012 shows that his status as one of the best players in the world has now been confirmed. The 32-year-old has been regarded as one of the best players for England over the last decade.
However, he has been unable to show for the same in terms of the number of trophies. Even though he has won the Champions League title with Liverpool in the past, he is yet to win a major title with the England national team and is also looking forward to his first Premier league title.
However, he has been at his inspirational best at Euro 2012. He has been made the captain of the national team by manager Roy Hodgson, and he has led by example. Even though Gerrard is known for his attacking displays, England manager Roy Hodgson has been using him as a defensive midfielder especially in the absence of Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry. He has excelled in his role according to Liverpool legend Terry McDermott, who has also said that a lot of credit should go to Steven Gerrard if England win the Euro 2012.
“He’s been absolutely phenomenal” he told Liverpool news. “For ten years or more, he has been the catalyst for everything at Liverpool, and it is the same with England at the moment. He has been fantastic. We all know what a sensational player he is, and how influential he has been for club and country. His performances over the last couple of weeks have simply reiterated that. The scary thing is, I don’t think he has even hit top form yet! If he is playing his B-game at the moment, then how good will he be when he hits his A-game? ,” he said.
