Posted on | October 4, 2008 | 3 Comments

Gerrard‘s goal from Liverpool‘s 3-1 victory against PSV seals his 100 goal for The Reds.



Gerrard, who plays for The Reds since he was 9 signed his first team apearence in 1998-1999 season. Since then the English international delighted the fans with his regular long-range strikes.
The goal against PSV marked his return to top form after groin injury. Last month the captain apologized to the fans because of his work rate and declared that he is only 70-80 percent fit.
The world class midfielder became the 16th Liverpool player to score 100 goals for the club.
Manager Rafa Benitez declared:”I think he can go on and get 200. One hundred goals is always a very good figure, but it is especially good for a midfielder.
He is one of the best offensive midfielders in the world and hopefully he will go on to score many for us in the future.”
Gerrard also made his 28th European goal for the club, a record which puts him 6 in front of Michael Owen.
And that’s not all for Liverpool‘s star. Gerrard was named the PFA 2UP Fans’ Player of the Month for September.
What a week for Gerrard who was also awarded with PFA Young Player of the Year, PFA Player of the Year, PFA Fans’ Player of the Year, European Midfielder of the Year, Premier League Player of the Year(twice), and UEFA Club Footballer of the Year during his career.
The Liverpool captain has been also nominated three times for the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Liverpool are sitting in second place in the Premier League table. The Reds are facing Manchester City this weekend.
The Liverpool fans are now hoping for a great season that will bring the Premier League trophy next May.
