Steven Gerrard has named his dream squad from players to have played in his lifetime, including only one Liverpool player from Jurgen Klopp’s current squad.
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher sent a challenge for Twitter followers, asking to name the best world XI that “have played while you have been alive but no two players can be from the same country or have played for the same club”.
Gerrard accepted his former Liverpool teammate’s challenge, delivering his line-up during an appearance on The Football Show on Sky Sports.
Asked about his line-up, the Rangers boss said: “Jamie (Carragher) sent me the challenge and what I will say is that it took me more than a couple of hours. I’ve been stewing on this for a couple of nights.”
Gerrard chose 4-2-3-1 formation to name his dream squad.
On the back, he selected Brazilian icon Cafu, former Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany, Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Andy Robertson from current Liverpool squad.
For the midfield, he picked former Manchester United captain Roy Keane and Real Madrid star Toni Kroos.
For the attacking position, Gerrard named Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi, French starlet Kylian Mbappe and Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero, while former Chelsea star Didier Drogba formed up top.
