Steven Gerrard - 5 Reasons Why He is an Icon

Steven Gerrard is the captain of Liverpool Football Club and one of the best players in the world at the moment.

He can be described as an attacking midfield player who can play off a main central striker. He is also very versatile being able to play in almost every position and this versatility also makes him one of the key players in the England national team.

His 5 reasons for being an icon are as follows:

He is a rare species these days in being a one club player and also a native of Liverpool. Despite being tempted twice to leave he has listened to his heart and stayed at the club he loves.

He is captain and leads the team by example during a game. His drive spurs his team mates on and he'll often win the man-of-the-match award through his dominating performances.

His headed goal in the 2005 European Champions League final was the start of perhaps the greatest comeback ever in a top level game. This provided the springboard for Liverpool to come back from a 3-0 deficit, level the game and win on penalties.

He is a constant scorer of great goals and his trademark is a thunderous strike from outside the box. Many times he has changed the course of a game with one of these rockets.

He  finished the previous season by being named the Football Writers Player of the Year after producing a constant high level of performance. This was on the back of being involved in an unsavoury incident in his private life that might have affected other people. However he rose above it and if anything elevated his game to an even higher level.
