Ok. I’m a Manchester United fan and its considered a treachery to feel sorry for a Liverpool player but nothing changes. I still think Liverpool sucks and Man Utd rocks.
Yes. Rivalries exist in football but its only on the pitch where all the hatred overflow but when the match ends, we shake hands and sit down together for beer. That’s why, I feel that I have to say something about Steven Gerrard.
As you know, the Liverpool Football Club captain was accused of attacking businessman Marcus McGee, 34, after a row over music in a bar. The 29-year-old was with friends at the Lounge Inn in Southport, Merseyside, in the early hours of December 29 when his party clashed with McGee, a member of another group.
Yes. Gerrard punched McGee and I do not condone violence. But for those who watch soccer, does Gerrard behaves like this on the soccer field? Does he push the referee? Does he spits on his opponent’s face? Have he ever lost his temper? Hell, I would hard pressed to remember the last time he got sent off!
What I’m trying to say is, what you are on the field reflects on how you behave off it. A perfect example is Joey Barton. This guy has been a terror on the field and off it. I have lost count of how many times he lost his temper and got sent off or how many times he’s been charged in court for fighting.
Joey Barton is a gangster. Steven Gerrard isn’t. That is why I believed he acted in self-defence.
