Steven Gerrard is approaching 500 appearances for Liverpool which would put him among many great men but he admits he cannot be called a champion until he wins a title. The classy midfielder understands that longevity in the game counts for nothing unless there is success involved and says he cannot be classed in the same category as the likes of Kenny Dalglish and Roger Hunt if there is no silverware around.
"Obviously it's something that I'm really proud of, to be getting close to 500 games for Liverpool, and to be mentioned in the same breath as people like Kenny Dalglish and Rober Hunt is special," Gerrard told Mirror Football.
"But they won titles, they won European trophies and every other kind of honour for this club, and that's what I want too for myself and for this team.
"It has been a disappointing week. We didn't turn up in the first half in Italy, and we were disappointed not to have won at Chelsea. We are desperate to do well, to win those games and give ourselves a chance of honours.
"I don't just want to play games, I want to be a part of a Liverpool side that is in there winning prizes year in and year out."
