This is quality from the lads at The Anfield Wrap, and if you’d like to hear the whole interview, follow the link in this sentence and check them out! It’s good stuff.
Peter Crouch has spoken to them upon the release of his autobiography, which he seems to have been plugging online for years!
The 6ft.7′ forward actually dedicates an entire chapter to Steven Gerrard, which shows just how highly he rates our legendary former captain.
Crouch arrived in 2005, just after Gerrard had lifted the Champions League, and left in 2008, having notched 42 goals in total.
Throughout the entirety of his Liverpool tenure, Gerrard was captain, as he was at times during Crouch’s England career, too.
And below, you’ll hear Crouch’s first impression of Stevie, whom he played against in youth football back in the late 1990s.
Sounds like our future no.8 was some player already!
"I played against Gerrard in the youth team. He smashed someone on the edge of the box, beat two men and crashed the hardest shot I've ever seen on to the cross bar. I thought… who's this fella?"
