The Rangers coach did not save anything regarding the Colombian’s weak performance against Bayer Leverkusen.
The elimination of Rangers at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Europa League It did not go unnoticed in Scotland and less for coach Steven Gerrard.
The Liverpool legend had no problem pointing out the weak performance of Alfredo Morelos, the team’s star striker and on whom hopes were to come back from the series that was missing 3-1.
“Everyone knows that Alfredo has his head elsewhere, there is no denying that,” said the coach at a press conference. For Gerrard it is clear that the constant rumors about his transfer to another team have Morelos out of shape, affecting the collective goals.
“My attention is focused on the team and the players who want to be here. If an offer comes that the board likes and the player tells me face to face that he wants to leave, we will see what happens,” added the Englishman with obvious discomfort for the situation that has developed for several weeks.
Interest in Morelos from Italy, Spain, England and France should not distract the Colombian, according to Gerrard: “Alfredo is professional enough, he should try to keep the noise away and concentrate. He must stay focused.”
