2. Steven Gerrard – Liverpool
We saw Steven Gerrard bid farewell to his connection with Liverpool last season. The Anfield icon still lives in the hearts of Liverpool fans and he certainly will never walk alone.
There’s no denying the impact the Englishman had on Liverpool and how can anyone forget that night at Istanbul. Winning the FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League with Liverpool, Gerrard signifies class.
A £32m bid was lodged by Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea in 2005 and it appeared evident that the Liverpudlian was heading to West London, but he refused to sign for them despite the lure of trophies at Stamford Bridge.
The England captain has since revealed that Ferguson tried to sign him numerous occasions, including when he was still a schoolboy, and also in 2002/03.
With more than 400 appearances for the club in all competitions, Gerrard is defiantly the best Liverpool ever had.
