Brendan Rodgers believes Steven Gerrard’s latest Liverpool milestone will never be matched…
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard missed out on making his 700th appearance versus West Ham United at Anfield this weekend due to a hamstring injury, but manager Brendan Rodgers believes the soon to be cracked milestone will never be repeated.
Gerrard, who is set to complete a move to LA Galaxy when his contract expires at the end of the season, will join Ian Callaghan (857) and Jamie Carragher (737) in reaching the landmark.
The 34-year-old will likely be on the bench today after playing 120 minutes against Chelsea in mid-week, but will surely come on late in the game to enjoy a fine reception from the Anfield faithful.
“It’s an incredible achievement when you think of his story, and the journey he’s had here,” the Reds boss explained in quotes used by the Daily Mirror.
“It will take some achievement by any player to do that again and I’m not sure they will. His life and journey here have been remarkable and you see how committed and focused on it he still is. And there are more appearances to come too.”
