Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“We are going to go for the win, we will be aggressive and positive and try and win the game. But, if that is not to be then it is very important that we take something out of it.“I think they have won five games from 18 and whilst there is huge respect there we know they are comfortable in a technical game.“The idea for us is to try and take them where they don’t want to go, make it uncomfortable, try and play at a tempo and speed that maybe they are not used to every week.“We know we are going to have 50,000 fans roaring us on, that will be a huge help. For us, this is a fantastic challenge and we can’t wait for us.”last_img
