Roma ace De Rossi welcomes comparison with Liverpool's Gerrard

Roma ace Daniele de Rossi has welcomed comparisons with Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard.

After De Rossi's brace last night against Georgia, Italy coach Marcello Lippi declared: "He's among the best central midfielders in the world. At the level of Frank Lampard (Chelsea) and Gerrard."

In response, De Rossi said: "Lippi's words give me great pleasure because to be compared to a huge player like Gerrard is truly a great compliment."
