Video - Gerrard says Leicester are crap and hails Robbie Keane
Steven Gerrard has handed down a cheeky snipe at Premier League champions Leicester and placed his LA Galaxy team-mate Robbie Keane on a pedestal alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In a video clearly designed for an American audience, Gerrard started by naming his three top players in world football and as former Republic of Ireland skipper Keane is a hero among the LA Galaxy faithful, he suggested the Dubliner should be in list of the world’s greatest players alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Gerrard picks out French hero Zinedine Zidane as the player he wanted to emulate when he was growing up, before naming his pick for the best three players in the modern game.
“Now it is obviously Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robbie Keane as the best three players in the world,” stated Gerrard. “That’s right isn’t it.”
Gerrard went onto paint a less than glamorous picture of the “wet and snowy” Liverpool as he cruised around in the Los Angeles sunshine and when his young passenger told him he wanted to leave America and sign for Leicester, he offered this response:
“Leicester….why,” he questioned. “What about Liverpool, or Barcelona or Real Madrid. Don’t got to Leicester, they are crap!”
It was all tongue in cheek stuff from Gerrard and this video is well worth a watch.
