Steven Gerrard, our greatest ever player in many people’s eyes, is considering ending his playing career.
He moved to MLS during the summer and has been playing with franchise LA Galaxy in the hope of collecting another trophy for the cabinet.
The 35-year-old legend has done well, largely, but the Galaxy were knocked out in the First play-off round and his season is now over until next year.
As a result, Gerrard thinks the 2016 campaign could be his final as a professional.
“It could be my last season as a footballer. I certainly don’t want to feel like I’m feeling right now come next year,” Gerrard told reporters in Seattle last week, published by LA Galaxy’s official website. “I’d love to go out on a high. It’s a long season and I only came here for the last four months, but I’ll certainly be better for the experience next year.”
Once Gerrard does end one of the greatest playing careers of the modern football era, it’ll hopefully only be a matter of time before he rejoins Liverpool in some sort of capacity. It’d be fantastic to see him on the coaching staff working with Jurgen Klopp, who’d be a brilliant mentor for our former skipper.
If it hadn’t been already, these comments from Gerrard completely quash any suggestions that he could join us on loan in January.
