Scott Parker believes he is thriving after playing alongside Steven Gerrard
Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker has, once again, hailed Liverpool star Steven Gerrard as a fantastic leader of men.
The duo have been in the England engine room as they won Group D, holding off the challenges of France, Sweden and co-hosts Ukraine.
“Steven has been fantastic since we’ve met up. He is a leader that does his talking on the pitch in the way his football does a lot of talking,” Parker said.
“I am thriving in playing alongside him. He is someone who I have always looked up to and he is a fantastic player. When you have the qualities and the abilities of Steven, you can adapt pretty well and I think you are seeing that now.”
