Steven Gerrard has spoken out about the departure of Raul Meireles to Chelsea and our captain has said that he was disappointed that the Portuguese midfielder left but he believes it was the right decision to do for the club.

“It was a bit of a surprise because of the timing.” said Gerrard.

“I don’t think Raul had been too happy because he wanted more game time, but the players who have been playing before him have been doing really well.

“He put in a transfer request and I’m sure Kenny and (director of football) Damien Comolli thought if he’s going to be unhappy and doesn’t want to be here then it was better to move him on.

“It was probably the right decision and we got good money back for him.”

Do you think it was the right decision to sell Meireles?

Was selling Raul Meireles to Chelsea a good idea?
