Chelsea boss Hiddink: Liverpool's Gerrard deserves Footballer of Year

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink says Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard fully deserves to be Footballer of the Year.

"Gerrard deserved it fully, what he was nominated for," said Hiddink. "He had a tremendous season, not just in his efficiency on the pitch, but also in his appearance as a professional player.

"He is very warm-hearted towards his club. You could say the same for Frank Lampard. He is well respected all over England."
