I Wanted Gerrard At Real Madrid - Luis Figo

Real Madrid legend, Luis Figo, has admitted that he once wished Steven Gerrard could join Real Madrid after watching the former Liverpool captain shine in Saturday's charity match at Anfield.

Gerrard stole the show as the 'Liverpool Legends' team beat their Madrid counterparts 4-3 in an entertaining clash in aid of the LFC Foundation. The midfielder had a hand in all four Reds goals - scoring one, setting up two and winning a penalty. Gerrard also rattled a shot off the bar for good measure on a sunny afternoon when an adoring crowd urged him to shoot at every opportunity.

Figo, a giant of Madrid's galactico era around the turn of the millennium, believes he would have fitted in well at the Bernabeu.

He said “The moment in life when we had the possibility to play together, that wasn't possible. I think it is a pity because everyone wants to play with the best. I think Gerrard showed in his career he was one of the best footballers in his position. It was a pity but for Liverpool it was lucky because he could show his quality and talent here, at Anfield.”
