Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to respond to the latest comments from Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane. 

This comes after Liverpool fan account @LFCTransferRoom shared a post on their Twitter page relaying quotes made by Zidane in 2015 (via the Liverpool Echo) on Reds legend Steven Gerrard.

The Frenchman revealed that at his peak, Gerrard was “the best in the world” before adding that in 2004, he told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez that he wanted Gerrard to partner him in midfield at the Spanish club.

Who were Liverpool scheduled to play this Monday?

Gerrard made 710 appearances in his time at the club, scoring 186 goals and providing 115 assists in all competitions (per Transfermarkt). Now that these quotes from Zidane revealing his desire to have played alongside Gerrard in Madrid back in 2004 have been doing the rounds once again on Twitter, this has led to a lot of Liverpool fans sharing their thoughts on what could have happened if Gerrard had made the move.
