STEVEN GERRARD 2000/01 PREMIER LEAGUE MATCH WORN LIVERPOOL JERSEY
Liverpool won a treble of cups in 2000/01, lifting the League Cup and FA Cup at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, before extending their reach to Europe and landing the UEFA Cup as well. They finished 3rd place in the Premier League.
The late, great Gerard Houllier was the man in charge, assembling a team that blended home-grown talents with players that he had brought to the club from across Europe. Such was his transformation of the squad, only one inherited player that hadn’t come through the youth ranks was left by the midway stage of the treble season - and that was fan favourite Patrik Berger.
The Reds needed penalties to see off second tier Birmingham in the final of the League Cup, then known as the Worthington Cup for sponsorship reasons. The FA Cup final at the same venue remains one of the more famous finals of recent times because Arsenal looked destined to lift the trophy until two late interventions from Michael Owen.
The UEFA Cup final in Dortmund that followed was a nine-goal thriller and a modern classic. Liverpool won 5-4 against Alaves, with the decisive blow an own-goal in extra-time.
Presented here is a red long-sleeved jersey that was worn by Steven Gerrard in the 2000/01 Premier League season. The jersey features the name "GERRARD" and #17 applied in felt fabric on the back of jersey. Premier League patches applied in felt on sleeves. Liverpool crest and Reebok are embroidered on the front. Sponsor is applied in felt material on the middle front as well.
