Former Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman believes Steven Gerrard should be finishing his career at Anfield, but expects both the player and club to be fine without each other.
McManaman told BT Sport, “He won’t regret leaving and Liverpool will be fine without him. However, I think he should have stayed and retired at Liverpool.
“There’s a player who would have signed if he had been offered a contract at the right time.
“I look at the midfielders there and I think ‘Are the other midfielders better than him?’ and the answer’s a resounding no.”
Steve McManaman, John Gregory and Michael Gray were speaking on Football Tonight, BT Sport’s football debate and news round-up show.
