Jedinak: Steven Gerrard CAN win the Premier League with Liverpool…
Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak has claimed that Steven Gerrard CAN win the Premier League with Liverpool, despite playing a major part in us missing out on the title last season.
Jedinak starred as Palace came from three goals down to draw with Liverpool at Selhurst last season, completing a miserable late twist in the title race which followed defeat to Chelsea.
But the Australian has given the Liverpool captain a glowing review as the Reds prepare to return to the same ground on Sunday. The Eagles midfielder, who is quoted by the Daily Star, insists Gerrard is not past it at 34 and still has time to lead Liverpool to their first title since 1990.
Jedinak, who ranks the former England man among his personal heroes, said: “I don’t think he’d still be playing if he thought last season was his last chance. I’m sure he believes he will get another chance.
“I’ve been a title winner back home so I know what it means, but I’ve also missed out too, so I’ve had ups and downs like that. “But Steven Gerrard’s had a great career and he’ll go on having a great career. He’s been a fantastic player for a long time.”
