“I think it is very flattering to be linked to a huge club like Real Madrid. I have had a couple of options through my career to go to Real Madrid but I resisted temptation because of the feeling I had for my hometown club,” Gerrard was quoted by the Daily Mail.
“It might be something I regret down the line for not challenging myself and experiencing another country but I would have had an even bigger regret leaving Liverpool.”
The comments come on the eve of a huge match at Anfield between the Reds and Madrid, where the hosts need a result after losing in the last round of fixtures to FC Basel.
Los Blancos are in an easier position, having won both of their games so far.
Gerrard warned his teammates about Cristiano Ronaldo, saying, “I think now he is arguably the best player in the world. The numbers he sets, the records, are phenomenal. He is at another level.”
With players such as Ronaldo and others like Toni Kroos, it will take a big performance from the Merseysiders on Wednesday night to come away with any points against the Galacticos.
