Steven Gerrard: 'Every Person Slips'

MOST COMMENTED

Steven Gerrard says the slip that arguably ended Liverpool's title hopes and England being knocked out the World Cup in the group stages have contributed to what has been "probably the worst three months of my life."

When Gerrard lost his footing against Chelsea in late April, he allowed Demba Ba to open the scoring and the Blues went on to win 2-0.

"Where do I rank it? It's probably the worst three months of my life. There is nothing else to say really is there ... " Gerrard told reporters in New Jersey. "I am man enough to take it on the chin and accept it. ... Every single person on the planet slips at some point in their life, whether it's on the stairs, on the floor or whatever. For me, it happened on the pitch at a really bad moment.

Gerrard had hoped to follow up with a successful World Cup but England was eliminated after two games: "I have had two really massive unbelievable lows in a short space of time, so it is a good test for me this season. Can I hit form after that? I believe that I can."

    Its true that everyone slips, and also true that, on occasion, a midfielder will surrender possession at midfield. The odd thing is when that happens and there's not a single defender between midfield and your GK.

    Gerrard is a class act and I hope one day he will win the EPL. Liverpool was so close and to place the blame on him is unfair. Liverpool had many chances to win the EPL before Gerrard slipped.
