Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard reveals that he is asked to be the side's "playmaker".

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has revealed that manager Brendan Rodgers expects him to be the side's playmaker.

There has been plenty of debate surrounding the best position of the Reds skipper over the last couple of years, with some preferring to see him operating further up the field.

However, Gerrard revealed that he is asked to sit deeper in midfield to try to orchestrate attacks for his teammates.

"My job and what the manager wants me to do from my position is to try to create and be a playmaker in there," he told the club's official website.

"Maybe I'm playing a little bit deeper this year but I can still get into areas where I can hurt the opposition. That's what I'm trying to do.

"If you play around good players, they make good movement and put themselves in good positions."

Last weekend marked the 15th anniversary of Gerrard's debut for the Reds.
