‘They’re all monsters and on the same page’: Reds legend Steven Gerrard praises the mental strength of the current Liverpool team 

  • Steven Gerrard has praised the Liverpool squad for their mental strength
  • He believes they have been ‘phenomenal’ for a number of seasons now
  • Liverpool are currently runaway leaders at the top of the Premier League

Steven Gerrard is very excited to see Liverpool getting better and winning more trophies over the next few years, praising everyone in the squad for their mental strength.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Rangers boss echoed Jurgen Klopp’s words last year when he called the team ‘mentality monsters.’ 

‘They’ve been phenomenal for a few years now,’ said Gerrard. ‘Last year they were unlucky not to be champions.’

Liverpool earned their highest ever Premier League points total last season, but still lost out to Manchester City in the end. 

‘That was down to how good Manchester City were. But they just seem to be getting better and stronger every single year.’

The Reds have reached the Champions League final two years in a row, beating Tottenham last year to win the trophy. 

Before the suspension of the Premier League, they were leaders by a large margin, with another title firmly in their grasp.

‘The one key thing that’s blown me away compared to when I played is the mental strength across the board,’ Gerrard continued.

‘We used to have some real good professionals and really mentally strong players within our squad.

‘But it seems as if from No.1 in the squad to player 26, mentally they’re all monsters and they’re all on the same page.’

Gerrard played for Liverpool between 1998 and 2015, winning the FA Cup twice, the League Cup three times, and the Champions League once. However, he never won a Premier League title with them.
