Danish tennis player is sad to see legend leave Anfield…
Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, and well known Liverpool fan, has been left saddened by the news of Steven Gerrard’s imminent Anfield exit.
The former world number one has said that she supports Gerrard’s decision and may elect to watch the former England international at his new club LA Galaxy.
“I’m obviously sad. I think Stevie has done so much for the team over the years,” Wozniacki was quoted by the Independent.
“He’s a legend. I think if that’s what he thinks is the right time, I have to support that.
“But at the same time he had a talk with the manager and said that maybe he wasn’t going to be playing as much.
“Yeah, I’m a little sad. I don’t know. I’m going to have my Stevie G jerseys hanging somewhere. Unfortunately he won’t be playing there anymore.
“I’ll have to make a trip probably to L.A. to have a look again. But, yeah, 17 seasons, 17 years, it’s a long time.”
The 34-year-old recently announced that he would be leaving the club, ending his 26 year association with Liverpool. His contract expires in the summer and will hope to secure some silverware in his final campaign on Merseyside.
Gerrard will also hope to help the side climb the Premier League table and challenge for the Champions League qualification spots. They have not had the best first half of the season and are in eighth place at present.
