Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard talks sports science in football at launch of new college

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was one of the guests of honour at the launch of the IFFDC Liverpool Football College.

Formerly the Liverpool Foundation college, it will now run independently of the charity.

Gerrard says the idea of a football-based higher education facility was born seven years ago after meeting with one of the directors David Rowe.

Liverpool's Under 18s head coach discussed youth development and the different pathways open to young footballers through the college comparing the changes in coaching development from when he was a youth player at Anfield.
