Former Liverpool favorite and current Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard couldn’t resist shooting his former teammate’s career path.
Steven Gerrard’s side gave a good account of itself
Steven Gerrard may have ruled the Red rivals on Saturday, but Aston Villa’s coach has shown he still feels close to the Merseys with a venomous thorn aimed directly at Michael Owen and Man Utd. Steven Gerrard’s side made a good impression on his return to Anfield, despite being defeated in the end. And Aston Villa’s new boss also quickly got to his feet during a post-match interview with former teammate Owen.
Speaking after the game, Michael Owen, who has played for both the Reds and Man Utd throughout his career, commented on the difficulties of returning to the competition in front of the loyal Anfield. Michael Owen clarified that they all played and returned to Anfield, he must admit he hated it when he came back to play against them.
According to Michael Owen, what were their emotions, how to get back today, and how did they feel when they took the team home? Without missing a beat, Steven Gerrard replied that if he played for Man Utd, he would not want to come back here either!
A little about the topic
Inspired by the excellent performance of goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, Villa on Steven Gerrard’s comeback came close to securing a point share at Anfield. Mohamed Salah had other ideas, however, beating the Argentine from a penalty near the end to take his Premier League goal 14 in a season.
It was Steven Gerrard’s second defeat since taking the reins at Villa Park, starting his tenure with three victories and a defeat to hold out on a ship after a difficult start to the campaign for the Birmingham side. Villa now sits in 12th place in the standings, nine points from the relegation zone.
