Former Juventus and Real Madrid midfielder Zinedine Zidane has labelled Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard ‘the best player in the world’.

“Is he the best in the world? He might not get the attention of (Lionel) Messi and Ronaldo but yes, I think he just might be,” the World Cup winner said.

“If you don’t have a player like Steven Gerrard, who is the engine room, it can affect the whole team.”

“When we were winning league titles and European Cups at Real, I always said Claude Makelele was our most important player.”

“There is no way myself, Figo or Raul would have been able to do what we did without Claude and the same goes for Liverpool and Gerrard.”

Zidane added: “He has great passing ability, can tackle and scores goals, but most importantly he gives the players around him confidence and belief.”

“You can’t learn that – players like him are just born with that presence.”
