Liverpool: Leading Liverpool to their first silverware in six years, captain Steven Gerrard says he wants to build up on the successful Carling Cup campaign to achieve more for his club.
“We need to build on it. It would be stupid to stop here. We want more. It’s always cruel when it goes to penalties. Cardiff need to be proud of their performance. But we got there by the skin of our teeth.” Gerrard was quoted as saying by a leading daily.
Gerrard, however had mixed emotions as despite his delight over winning the League cup, he had mixed emotions as his cousin Anthony Gerrard missed a penalty for Cardiff City as they lost to Liverpool in the penalty shootout.
“Obviously I am delighted to have won the trophy for our supporters but I feel for Anthony and Cardiff. We always do it the hard way for some reason, and we have done it again. I have mixed emotions at the moment.”
“It was always going to be the case that one of us was going to be sad, one was going to be celebrating. It doesn’t matter what I say to him. I know that he will be down. I will be here for him and all the family will be behind him.” he was quoted as saying.
It is not pleasant at all that I had to approach the court but there was no option left for me. I am glad that I have been proved right and it has lifted my morale ahead for the Asian Games.
