Jose Mourinho has revealed he tried to sign Steven Gerrard for Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Liverpool this Sunday, Mourinho said: “I tried to bring him to Chelsea, I tried to bring him to Inter (Milan), I tried to bring him to Real Madrid but he was always a dear enemy.”
Asked whether he regretted not signing the midfielder, Mourinho added: “No, no. I am very happy that he didn’t (leave)
“In the end I think he had an amazing career and (such) an amazing feeling with his people that he refused to play for other big clubs – he refused to play in other big leagues to play only for Liverpool.”
