Liverpools Gerrard has a secret love for classic novelsFebruary 10th, 2009 - 4:25 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.10 (ANI): Liverpool and England football star Steven Gerrard has a secret love reading classic novels.
The England star likes nothing more than settling down with a weighty book after a day on the pitch.
And he has read his favourite John Steinbecks Of Mice And Men so many times it has fallen to pieces, reports the Daily Star.
Obviously football is my main passion, but I love reading. My favourite book is definitely Of Mice And Men, the 28-year-old Gerrard said.
It is quite a sad story. Ive read it so many times the book has almost fell apart. In school we watched the story on video, did a project on it and an exam on it. I got a C in my English GCSE because of that book, he adds.
Gerrard also fancies himself as something of a creative writer.
I wrote a great story in school about how one day I would win the World Cup. I liked messing about with words it was good fun, he said. (ANI)
