Ex Chelsea player not really sorry for killing Gerrard's title dream

Ex Chelsea player not really sorry for killing Gerrard's title dream

Ex-Chelsea forward Demba Ba scored the Blues' second goal against Liverpool at Anfield in 2014.

A Steven Gerrard slip allowed him through and he put the ball into the net. Chelsea won the game and the defeat massively dented the Reds' title chances.

"I only realised how big a deal that was a couple of years later, when people still talked about it," Demba Ba told the Athletic about the incident.

"They still talk about it! It was traumatic for them. But we didn’t enjoy the fact that we killed their dream, we simply enjoyed winning.

"No, not really. Because that’s the game," Ba added when asked if he felt sorry for Gerrard.

"You make errors and others take advantage.

"What Steven Gerrard has done for the world of football is tremendous. But this is life, unfortunately.

"Not all stories can end in fairytales."

Steven Gerrard said of the slip: "That was a f***ing tough moment, even tougher than what people probably think it was.

"The only time in a 20-year career I’ve been numb, like my body's felt numb."

The legendary captain never managed to win the Premier League title as he left Liverpool in 2015 and retired the following year.
