Football Writer’s Association has bestowed the honor of Footballer of the Year award to Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard. I may like Cristiano Ronaldo a lot but I’m a staunch Liverpool fan and I am proud of the honor given to Stevie G.

The FWA Footballer of the Year is an annual award given to the players who is adjudged to have been the best of the season in English football. The winner is selected by a vote amongst the 400 football journalist members based throughout England. And this year’s poll sees Steven Gerrard edging out the likes of Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney of Manchester United. He has been exceptional this year and Steven Bates, FWA Chairman was quoted saying that Gerrard  “performance this season has been of the highest quality. He is in his prime and quite rightly rated one of the finest midfield player of this generation.”

Gerrard, the first Liverpool player since John Barnes, who won in 1990 to receive such accolade will  receive his award at the FWA’s gala dinner at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on May 29, a day before his birthday.
