DjibrilCisse said that it was an honor for him to be playing with Steven Gerrard and that he is a natural leader. He always had the appropriate words to motivate his team mates, and the Frenchman said that this would allow him to become a great manager.
Cisse said that he has not spoken to Gerrard yet, but he believes that taking a job at the Liverpool Academy is a good step for the player and working alongside a manager such as Jurgen Klopp should provide him with the necessary experience to manage at the highest level.
Cisse said that he has always been an admirer of Steven Gerrard and it is the speech that he gave in Istanbul that convinced him that the former Liverpool captain could go on and become a successful manager.
Gerrard knows how to motivate people and create passion in the heart of the people. He believes that this was the main reason why Liverpool managed to fight back in the Champions League final and go on and win the cup.
