Gerrard speaks before the Middlesbrough vs. Liverpool

Midfielder Steven Gerrard has finally spoken in public about his role in the squad. After weeks of discussion and debate from pundits and football fans alike he now confirms that he will play a central role in the squad. But why has it taken this long for him to come out and talk about the situation? Kuyt, Carragher, Reina, Rise, Bellamy, Finnan, Benitez and others have all talked about Liverpool's diminished title hopes and about their away form. And captain Steven Gerrard has kept quiet about the whole situation.

Well, now captain Steven Gerrard has revealed he is set to finally be handed a central midfield role.

Gerrard said ahead of the game at Middlesbrough: "I spoke with Benitez and he said I would get a lot more time in the middle now Sissoko is out."

We must remember that Gerrard figured in the centre in England's 1-1 draw against Holland in Amsterdam.

He then took the opportunity to stress his preference for the centre rather than on the right flank, a move by coach Benitez that has been a source of debate as Liverpool have struggled in the Premier League.

Gerrard stated: "I always enjoy it there in the middle. That's where I feel I can get the best out of myself.

"The formation worked and the positive thing is we know we can use another formation now with 4-3-3 as well as 4-4-2.

"In fact, we just need to build on this performance for the next qualifier."
