French legend Zinedine Zidane has said that according to him, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is the best footballer in the world.

Steven Gerrard>

The former Juventus and Real Madrid playmaker and former World Cup winner has told the British tabloid The Daily Mail that it is Gerrard and not either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo who is the best player in the world.

The three-times World Player of the Year explained:

“Is he the best in the world? He might not get the attention of Lionel Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo but yes, I think he just might be. If you don’t have a player like Steven Gerrard, who is the engine room, it can affect the whole team.

“When we were winning league titles and European Cups at Real, I always said Claude Makelele was our most important player. There is no way myself, Luis Figo or Raul would have been able to do what we did without Claude and the same goes for Liverpool and Gerrard.

“He has great passing ability, can tackle and scores goals, but most importantly he gives the players around him confidence and belief.

“You can’t learn that, players like him are just born with that presence.”
