Babel: Gerrard said Liverpool would regret letting me go

Hoffenheim winger Ryan Babel has revealed Steven Gerrard feels Liverpool will regret selling him.

Babel was offloaded by Liverpool in January.

"Liverpool have not made full use of my skills. It was the same under Rafa Benitez as it was with Roy Hodgson. I think Kenny Dalglish would have given me a fair chance," declared Babel.

"Steven Gerrard was a great inspiration. He often said that I should not give up. When I left Steven also said to me that he was convinced of my qualities and I still can be a big player.

"'Liverpool will regret your departure', were his last words he said to me."
