The Kop star said: āOK, he has played me in different positions.
āBut I feel a lot more comfortable now in that I can play almost anywhere on the pitch. Rafa has taken my game to the next level. I feel since heās been here my game has come on in leaps and bounds ā heās certainly improved me as a player.
āThere are some games when I have to change my style of play. If it is a big game, for example, I realise that I canāt just be bombing into the box all the time.
āThere are times when I have to be a bit more disciplined. Weāll have to wait and see where Iāll play for the majority of the season. But I know I can fit into a number of positions and do a job for the team.ā
Gerrard also revealed how the Spanish manager is such a stickler for perfection that he picks everyone up on the slightest mistake ā and that is just the way he likes it.
He added: āIād prefer to have a manager like Rafa who will tell me where Iām going wrong and where I need to readjust slightly.
āI have played for managers who perhaps wonāt pull you on the things youāre doing wrong.
āThatās not going to get you anywhere, is it? But heās the kind of manager who doesnāt let anything go.ā
