Steven Gerrard might have left Liverpool and moved on to play the Major League Soccer in America, but, he still feels gutted about the fact that he slipped during the Chelsea game in April last year and missed out on winning his maiden Premier League.
Gerrard had an illustrious career playing at the top level in his country for one and half decades and he won everything in that time period apart from Premier League.
That dream of his could have been fulfilled in 2013-14 if Liverpool had managed a draw and a couple of wins in their last three games.
They were dominating everyone at that point of time and were leading the table.
Everyone was backing them to be going to bag at least one point versus Chelsea and then, beat the two minnows thereafter to seal the title.
But, the fate was not going to have it that way.
Gerrard who had had such a great season, that one, as a player and as a leader, became the reason of his team losing the way versus Chelsea.
He slipped at a very crucial juncture in that game which helped the opposition score a goal and get 1-0 up.
From that point onwards, the tables turned the other way around for the Reds and not only did they lose that very game, they were stopped on a draw in the next game by Crystal Palace which well and truly put them out of the title race.
Talking about that incident, Gerrard said, “The timing of that slip was really bad. More than a year has passed since then, but, it still comes to my mind every day.”
Gerrard would probably be playing his first match for his new club Galaxy at some point of time next month.
