Former England and Manchester City coach Sven Goran Eriksson says Steven Gerrard must quit Liverpool if he wants to win the Premier League.

Eriksson reckons Kop captain Gerro will not fulfil his dream with the current squad.

Sven said: “I don’t begrudge a good guy like Steven winning the Premier League.

"But maybe he needs to change clubs if he wants to win that title.

“Steven Gerrard is Mr Liverpool and he has won the Champions League, FA Cup, Super Cup and League Cup with them.

“The question is whether he will ever win a Premier League title? As things look now, absolutely not. A lot of things have to change at Liverpool for that to happen.

“The owners have to pump in more money and buy the right players.

“Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing have been expensive signings but have not been a success.

“When I look at their team I see just three world-class players — Gerrard, Pepe Reina and Luis Suarez.”
