Gerrard wanted Mourinho as Liverpool boss


Steven Gerrard wished the Portugese coach had spent a few years at Anfield

The ex-Liverpool captain turned down the chance to work with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea in 2005.

Gerrard, who now plays for MLS side LA Galaxy, admits he probably would have won a few more trophies if Mourinho had ever taken the manager’s job at Liverpool.

“The dream for me would have been if Mourinho would have come and maybe sampled Liverpool for a few years,” he said.

“I’m sure he could’ve added a couple of trophies to my collection.”

When asked about his loyalty to Liverpool, following the interest from Chelsea, in an interview with the BBC he said he “never, ever regretted representing Liverpool.”

Liverpool and Chelsea want Sporting Lisbon midfielder

The two Premier League clubs are both keen on William Carvalho, whilst Paris Saint-Germain have also stated their interests.

The Portugal international has been tracked by a number of top European clubs during the past few seasons after impressing for both club and country.

Jordan Henderson and Joe Allen are both out injured at the moment which could encourage Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers to pursue the 23-year-old.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are currently 14th in the league after winning just two of their first seven fixtures and Mourinho may well decide to bring in Carvalho to add some steel to his midfield.
