In a revealing interview with NBC earlier this summer, Steven Gerrard spoke of his desire to experience the Champions League once more and aspirations for this season.

The Liverpool skipper also mentioned the pride he has at the team's achievements last term in coming so close to the Premier League title, what it is that makes Brendan Rodgers such a special manager and what it means to be back amongst Europe's elite teams once again.

"When you watch the Champions League and you're not involved there's jealousy and envy seeing other players play on the big stage and that Champions League music," said Gerrard.

"Because of the experiences I've had and gained over the years, I was so desperate to taste it again, even if it was just one more time."
