Ollie’s Photoshop skills = almost as bad as Liverpool’s form this season
“Inter are working to sign Steven Gerrard [this summer], given that Liverpool are in economic difficulty,” an Inter source has told Corriere dello Sport.
I have no idea if there’s any truth in this, or if the source is real, but I would very much like it to happen this summer, if only to see a major English player take a risk for once by moving – willingly, mind – to a foreign club.
Too many English stars are content to play their club fooball at home, understandably given the rewards on offer in the Premier League; being loyal to one club can be a good thing but I also think it can be symptomatic of a lack of ambition and vision. Why not test yourself in another big league and simultaneously embrace a new culture? I’d have loved to see Ryan Giggs play for Barcelona, for example, or Ashley Cole for Juventus, say.
If Rafa stays at Anfield and continues to balls things up, Gerrard might as well move elsewhere for the final act of his playing career. Who knows, perhaps he could make the same impact at the San Siro as Paul Ince once did.
