Steven Gerrard says it's a big honour to be a Liverpool player.The Liverpool captain says pulling on the famous Red shirt every week is a dream come true and the club means as much to him as it does the fans.
"I love being a Liverpool player, being captain, living the dream. I wouldn't change it for the world. But sometimes there's that much at stake," said Gerrard.
"Sometimes you want it so bad you can only really enjoy it when you get the right result.
"I've never really thought during a game: 'I'm really enjoying this.'
"When it's 0-0 or we're losing it's like: 'Let's get the win and get out of here.'
"It's the same for the fans. If they say they enjoy it I bet they only mean at the final whistle when they've got the result.
"I take any defeat home with me. I'm not the same person until the next game. Luckily we win a lot or I'd be a nightmare to be with."
