Zlatan Ibrahimovic says Steven Gerrard needs to test himself abroad

Gerrard will win his 100th England cap when he leads out the side in a match to mark the opening of the Friends Arena in Stockholm.

Paris St Germain striker Ibrahimovic says he is a big admirer of Gerrard but believes he should leave Anfield, where he has spent more than a decade, and move to a "big international club".

"Steven Gerrard is respected throughout Europe and is always the player the coach says to be careful with because he is the one that makes the difference," said Ibrahimovic, who has had spells at Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barcelona and AC Milan.

"But, although of course Liverpool is a big club, I would like to see Steven at a big international club.

"I would like to see that also for England because it is very exciting when someone goes abroad and shows who he is in another competition.

"For me, a fantastic player can make the difference in every country wherever he plays. I'm pretty sure Steven would do that also."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
