In other questions, Gerrard said Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso was the player he would most like to bring back to Anfield.

"Xabi Alonso – best midfielder I've played with, I miss playing with him," Gerrard wrote.

Gerrard also named Jose Mourinho as the manager he has never played under but would most like to.

Gerrard has represented England at five major tournaments, and when asked who he would pick alongside him in a national side dream team, he selected Manchester United greats Paul Scholes and David Beckham alongside Anfield legend Steve McManaman.
