The legendary Steven Gerrard of Liverpool once attempted to convince a former teammate from England to join him at Anfield.


Bobby Zamora, who made his Three Lions debut against Hungary in 2010, was the player in question.


While representing England, Gerrard discussed joining Liverpool with Zamora.

In fact, Gerrard made an attempt to convince Zamora to sign with his preferred team. Gerrard scored twice during the game as the Three Lions emerged victorious, winning 2-1.


That was the season that Roy Hodgson, who had replaced fired Rafael Benitez as Reds manager, took over.


Zamora had scored 19 goals this season in all competitions, and he had previously assisted Fulham in winning the Europa League.


“I probably ought to have transferred from Fulham to Liverpool,” Zamora stated on the Undr the Cosh podcast.


Roy Hopkinson travelled to Liverpool. They placed a simultaneous £10 million bid, as did Spurs.


“When I got in the lift with my best friend and Stevie G after my first England game against Hungary, Stevie G said, ‘Mate, f***ing brilliant today, well done.'” Are you planning to visit Liverpool? “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” was my response. Thus, he said, “I’ll talk to Roy.”


It was after my girls. “You’re going to be my key man, I need you, and we’ll give you a new deal,” said Mark Hughes. For some reason, I answered, “Yeah, OK.”


But it’s true that I ought to have travelled to Liverpool. Despite the fact that Roy performed poorly there. I ought to have been at Liverpool for five years. There aren’t enough branches for you to hit coming down from that.


The forward broke his foot in a challenge with teammate Karl Henry after signing a new contract at Craven Cottage in May 2010.


Later on, he would sign with Queens Park Rangers, assisting them in their Premier League comeback.

The striker netted the all-important goal in the play-off final and went on to make 96 appearances for QPR.


Zamora would end up finishing with a second spell back at Brighton, which capped off a stellar career, having managed a total of 506 appearances netting 143 goals.
