Former Chelsea striker Demba Ba has admitted he did not feel sorry for Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard after his infamous slip in 2014.
Ba capitalised on a slip from Gerrard and scored the opening goal as Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-0 at Anfield to kill their hopes of winning the Premier League.
Speaking ahead of the showdown between the two teams on Sunday at Anfield, Ba has admitted he felt no sympathy for Gerrard in the aftermath of the game because he isn’t a Gerrard fan or a Liverpool fan.
“I didn’t feel sorry for him,” Ba told The Sun.
“I’m not a Steven Gerrard supporter. I’m not a Liverpool supporter.
“I’m not a Man City supporter or happy that they won the league.
“It’s all part of the game. It’s the same as Crystal Palace last year when they were safe and had nothing to play for, they went and played at Stoke and sent them down by winning.
“You go and do your job, you go to win.”
Ba scored a late winner as Chelsea beat PSG in the Champions League that season to reach the semifinals.
Ba remembers that goal fondly, saying: “When you talk about the one I scored against Paris, it’s great because it was the goal that took us to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
“It is something that is great and more memorable to me.
“But that goal at Anfield hasn’t brought anything to us apart from to beat Liverpool away.
“It didn’t get us to another stage, it didn’t make us win the league or whatever.
It’s like any other normal goal I would have scored.”
