Steven Gerrard: Liverpool legend reveals retirement date

Posted by

After a blockbuster move to the LA Galaxy in MLS resulted in yet another year without a league title, former Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard is almost ready to hang up the cleats.

In an interview with the LA Galaxy’s website, Gerrard revealed that next year – the 2016 MLS season – could be his last season playing football. Gerrard said that he hopes he can help the Galaxy finish next season on a high note as opposed to the one-and-done performance the team put up against the Seattle Sounders in the MLS Cup Playoffs knockout round.

“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 said.

“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.”

Gerrard played 17 seasons at Liverpool, making over 700 appearances and over 180 goals for the club. Though he never won the Premier League, Gerrard led the Reds to two FA Cup titles, three League Cups, the Champions League, UEFA Cup and two UEFA Super Cups.

However, despite his relative failure in not winning the EPL crown, Gerrard remains one of the greatest players in the history of the club.
