Chelsea praise for Liverpool hero
Chelsea manager Avram Grant says Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard is the 'player of the year'.
Speaking to the News of the World, Grant said: "Gerrard is a great player and a great person,"
"For me he is the player of the year in England and maybe in Europe because of the influence he has on the team.
"He's very good, I like him very much as a player. And I know him, he is a nice guy, a positive guy and he is an example for many people.
"Unfortunately he plays against me, not with me, but he is still my favourite player.
"I'm not surprised he is playing up front with Fernando Torres now because I think he can play in many positions.
"In that position he probably feels more free. Tactically, it's not easy to play against this position."
