New Liverpool signing James Milner believes that no player can fill the void Gerrard left at Liverpool, saying even Messi will struggle.
Gerrard ended his 17-year union with Liverpool and opted for a move to LA Galaxy of the MLS on a free transfer, Gerrard has been effective, scoring on his debut in the league.
Liverpool have been active in the window following his exit and former City player, Milner believes that it is impossible to replace Gerrard.
“I don’t think there’s someone on the planet who could replace Gerrard for what he did for Liverpool football club over the years, so as a team we need to replace his output,” Milner is quoted as saying by abc.
“And I’m sure that can be done, but me personally, I’m a different player to him and I’ll do my job and do what I do best.
“Even Messi would struggle to replace Stevie for what he’s done for Liverpool over the years.
“What he’s done on and off the field, as a player and as a captain, as a person, he’s been amazing. It’s a big void to fill but I’m sure as a team we can do that.”
