According to The Daily Mail Steven Gerrard has revealed that Real Madrid wanted him to ‘kick up a war’ to force through a move from Liverpool during Jose Mourinho’s time in charge of the Bernabeu club.
Gerrad is quoted as saying.
“They wanted me to kick up a war to get out of Liverpool for a certain amount of money, which I wasn’t prepared to do,”
“I think Real Madrid, when they’re after a player they have the attitude of ‘we’re Real Madrid, you should fight to come to us.’
“But my love for Liverpool, I’m not prepared to go to war and plus I was very happy and stable at the time.”
