Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed that Tottenham Hotspur showed an interest in signing him at the end of last season, but he simply could not be motivated to move to the North London side.
“There was interest from Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino. It was good to know he still rated me” Gerrard wrote
“ I was sure I could play in the Premier League for another year but there would not have been much of a buzz doing the same thing all over again with Tottenham.
“The first offer came from Besiktas, then managed by Slaven Bilic. Monaco were next. They came in strong. Paris Saint-Germain were also very keen. David Moyes called my agent a couple of times, to see whether I would be interested in playing for him at Real Sociedad.
“I was slightly interested in PSG and Monaco but how could I come back to Anfield if there was a European game?”
He was never ever going to remain in the English Premiership or join a big European club, like he says himself, he could not see himself playing against his former club.
