Gerrard: Liverpool academy has some good kids

Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard says there's plenty of talent coming through the club's academy.

Not since Gerrard broke on to the scene in 1998 has Liverpool produced a world-class star.

But he told FourFourTwo magazine: "Don't forget Stephen Warnock, who's been a great player for Blackburn and Villa. But yeah, it's true (players haven't come through).

"That's why there have been a lot of changes at the club recently, because we want to see another Robbie Fowler, another Michael Owen, another Jamie Carragher coming through.

"But I've had a couple of chats to Kenny since he's been back and he's very excited about certain players.

"I won't name them because that's pressure the kids don't need. Their only pressure should come from making sacrifices and pushing themselves hard to get into the first team."
