Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“Unfortunately we’ve conceded a counter-attack but I think it’s very hard for me to criticise the players for what they gave tonight.“We’ve certainly been tested,” Gerrard said. “I think as a group we haven’t helped ourselves in certain situations with suspensions and availability.“Obviously injuries at certain times like Ryan Kent at the weekend.

That means quality players that can come in and help.“We focus domestically now to put ourselves in position to come back again.”
