Gerrard’s farewell press conference (14.05.15)

“I want to finish on a high at Anfield but there’s no getting away from it, it will be emotional.”

“I’m proud of what I’ve achieved here. I grew up dreaming of playing for Liverpool just one time.”

“I feel bit sorry for my teammates this week as focus all on me. Never my intention to grab any glory, always about the team here.”

“I am going to miss it so much. Plan is to stay strong and avoid the tears. I’ve loved every minute of representing these supporters. I’ve always tried to be the best I can be.”

I want to play every minute possible in these last 2 games. I want to be involved against Stoke. This season we fell a bit short. But there’s a fantastic core of players here with great potential. I’m proud of what I’ve achieved here. I grew up dreaming of playing for Liverpool just one time. I’m looking forward to the match, I want to finish on a high.”

Istanbul the pinnacle. How the evening panned out, will go down in history as greatest night ever. I was proudest man on planet.”

Hat-trick against Everton at Anfield was so sweet after all the stick I’ve taken from the blue noses over the years.”

“I’d take bits and bobs from them all if I go on to become a manager. I wish I had met Brendan Rodgers earlier in my career.

“From 8 to 18, Hughie McAuley, Steve Heighway and Dave Channon prepared me for the demands of being a professional footballer.”

“I owe a lot to Gerard Houllier. He was like a father figure to me.”

Rafa Benitez improved me so much tactically as a player.”

“To take a coaching role at this club, firstly you have to be good enough. Just because I’m Steven Gerrard, doesn’t matter.

“I’m doing my UEFA coaching badges at the moment.

I’m so confident about this new season. Like i’m completely confident that we will somehow lose to West Ham 5-0 even though they basically have no strikers, their first choice goalkeeper is suspended, their second choice sucks, one of their main defenders is injured, and their captain is gone. And trust me, the dodgy 1-0 wins against Stoke and Bournemouth, managing to get points only because of incorrect refereeing calls, and our inability to score against a terrible Arsenal defence haven’t made me any less confident.
