Liverpool skipper Gerrard: I want to start season with BANG

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard is motivated about having his best ever season ahead.

A decision was made in April for Gerrard to undergo surgery with the aim of quelling a groin problem which restricted him to 24 appearances in 2010-11.

The operation was such a success that the skipper now feels fitter than ever ahead of pre-season training in July.

"I want to come back with a bang, I want to have a big season," Gerrard told Liverpoolfc.tv in an interview during the Steven Gerrard Foundation Trophy golf event in Portugal.

"It's been non-stop football for me since I started when I was 17. I've never had a period of more than four or five weeks out of the game, so it's been nice to rest mentally. You don't want to miss games but when you're watching them it gives you that edge, that buzz to get back. I'll come back hungry and hopefully there's a very productive season ahead for me.

"I've had a rest mentally, my injury's coming on well and I can't wait for the season to start."
