Steven Gerrard believes that former Red Danny Murphy was “underrated” as a player during his time at the club.
Gerrard stated that the other teams weren’t too worried about Murphy when he walked out onto the pitch.
Gerrard told former Manchester United defender Gary Neville the following on Soccerbox, which was broadcasted on Optus Sport (9:21): “He was underrated for us Danny Murphy.
“Because he could play different positions and had good quality about him. Teams didn’t really worry about him.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
I remember Murphy for some of the big goals that he scored for Liverpool, especially against Manchester United. Murphy scored three winning goals against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
What is evident in regards to those particular goals was that they were all different. It didn’t matter if it were from a free-kick, open play or from the penalty spot, Murphy found a way.
Despite Murphy having a really solid career for the Reds, he is not a player that the Anfield faithful mention too often.
