Juventus coach Deschamps: We need Liverpool’s Gerrard

Deschamps told Gazzetta dello Sport: “In midfield we would need players who are already experienced, physically imposing and with great technique, like Patrick Vieira was for this team last season.

“If we have a chance of getting Gerrard, then I’ll personally ride to the airport on a bicycle to pick him up! I won’t risk any delays! Juventus have to aim for players like him if we want to make that leap up in quality.”
