Steven Gerrard: The moment in my Liverpool career that made me CRY in the back of my car

Former Reds star opens up in his autobiography.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed that his slip in the game against Chelsea in 2014 led to him crying uncontrollably in the back his car.

The Reds legend is one of his old club’s best-ever players, but he single-handedly cost his side the game against the Blues that eventually saw Manchester City win the Premier League title instead.

Gerrard slipped after an easy pass, allowing Demba Ba to score for Chelsea in a scrappy win at Anfield late on in the 2013/14 season, and the former England skipper now describes it as the worst moment in his career.

In his forthcoming autobiography, he writes: “I sat in the back of the car and felt the tears rolling down my face. I hadn’t cried for years but, on the way home, I couldn’t stop. The tears kept coming. I can’t even tell you if the streets were thick with traffic or as empty as I was on the inside. It was killing me.

“I had also given absolutely everything of myself to Liverpool: in training, in almost 700 games, off the pitch, around the squad and as part of the club, the community and the city.

“I could not have done any more. I had squeezed out every last ounce of ambition and desire and hope inside me.

“Instead of hitting a long crossfield pass to set up a goal, making a decisive tackle or curling the ball into the back of the Chelsea goal to seal our victory, I had fallen over.”
