The Kop star said: â€śOK, he has played me in different positions.
â€śBut 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 heâ€™s been here my game has come on in leaps and bounds â€” heâ€™s certainly improved me as a player.
â€śThere are some games when I have to change my style of play. If it is a big game, for example, I realise that I canâ€™t just be bombing into the box all the time.
â€śThere are times when I have to be a bit more disciplined. Weâ€™ll have to wait and see where Iâ€™ll 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.â€ť
Gerrard also revealed how the Spanish manager is such a stickler for perfection that he picks everyone up on the slightest mistake â€” and that is just the way he likes it.
He added: â€śIâ€™d prefer to have a manager like Rafa who will tell me where Iâ€™m going wrong and where I need to readjust slightly.
â€śI have played for managers who perhaps wonâ€™t pull you on the things youâ€™re doing wrong.
â€śThatâ€™s not going to get you anywhere, is it? But heâ€™s the kind of manager who doesnâ€™t let anything go.â€ť
