Steven Gerrard explains why Jose Mourinho would have been perfect for Liverpool

Steven Gerrard outlines the reasons why Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho would have been successful at Liverpool.

Steven Gerrard has written in his new book ‘My Story’ that current Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho would have been a perfect manager for Liverpool.

“He was linked with a move to Anfield a couple of times but it never materialised,” the Liverpool legend wrote in his book, as reported by The Daily Mail. “I know I'm biased, but I think it would have been a perfect match.

“The Liverpool fans would have loved him and he would have known exactly how to turn that love into adoration.

“He always told me about his deep respect for our supporters. Jose would have had a fantastic time bringing huge success to Liverpool.”

Mourinho is one of the best managers in the world and has been very successful in the Premier League.

In his first spell in charge of the Blues, the Portuguese tactician won the Premier League twice, the FA Cup once and the League Cup twice.

Although Mourinho failed to lead Chelsea to the Champions League title, last season he took the London outfit to Premier League glory.

The 52-year-old has won the Champions League with FC Porto and Inter Milan, while he guided Real Madrid to La Liga triumph in the 2011-12 campaign.

Mourinho is a winner, and he would have been a success at Liverpool if backed by the board.

The Merseyside outfit are struggling to even finish in the top four of the Premier League these days.
