Þá er það opinbert, Steven Gerrard hefur verið valinn leikmaður ársins í ensku deildinni af blaðamönnum!
Einsog segir á opinberu heimasíðunni:
>His two goals at West Ham United on Saturday – which temporarily fired Liverpool back to the top of the league – saw him climb above Ian St John in the club’s all-time scoring charts as he took his tally for the season to an impressive 23, equalling his best ever return in a red shirt.
>Fifteen of his goals this term have arrived in the Premier League and have included strikes in high-profile games against Manchester United and Everton, while in Europe he also rose to the occasion with five goals in the group stages – including his 100th goal for Liverpool against PSV Eindhoven – and then two more against Real Madrid in the last sixteen clash at Anfield.
Formaður blaðamannasamtakana sagði við þetta tilefni:
>”He beat off a strong challenge from Old Trafford stars Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand to emerge as a clear winner and he follows a long and illustrious list of British and European footballers to win the vote of the Football Writers.”
Mikið var þetta nú ánægjulegt. 🙂
