Posted by

Crouch played with some outstanding players in his career, from Frank Lampard, to David Beckham, to Xabi Alonso, but few appear to have left such a lasting impression on him than Gerrard.

Gerrard was not only an outstanding player, he was also widely regarded as a mentality monster. A man who would never let up, never say die, and it’s that attitude that won Liverpool that famous Champions League final in Istanbul.

Crouch, who saw first-hand what Gerrard was like both as a player and a leader, provided some insight into the now Rangers manager during BT Sport’s Premier League Tonight show after Liverpool’s victory over Tottenham on Thursday night.

It’s a great watch, especially for Liverpool fans, with there being no better way to gain insight into the kind of manager Gerrard will be, having been a player with a mentality like this…
