Steven Gerrard Biography
An accomplished midfield player for Liverpool who remains one of the most outstanding players in the Premier League.
To highlight Steven’s attributes would be to do him a disservice – there are no weak points in the game of a player who is arguably the most complete midfielder in the country. Steven graduated from the club’s academy, to sign a professional contract in February 1998 and he made his first-team debut against Blackburn in November of that year, almost immediately becoming a regular in the side.
Originally playing on the right wing, Steven moved into the centre of midfield and overcame a series of injuries to become team captain in 2003, a position he has held ever since.
During his career domestic and international honours have arrived at regular intervals, the greatest of course being the Champions’ League winners medal Steve received for captaining Liverpool on that unforgettable night in Istanbul back in May 2005.
He missed the start of 2011-12 through injury but returned to scoring against Manchester United in his come-back game. Steven suffered further injury problems but appeared regularly in the second half of the season leading the team in two cup finals. He made his 400th Barclays Premier League appearance in the Merseyside Derby in March marking the occasion in an appropriate manner by scoring a hat-trick.
Steven has won a host of personal awards including PFA Player of the Year in 2005-06 and Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year in 2008-09. Steven made his debut for England in May 2000.
He was appointed team captain for Euro 2012 playing in all of England’s games and winning his 96th cap in the quarter final game against Italy. He was subsequently named in the UEFA team of the tournament.
