Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard could be set to make his return from injury as soon as Friday.

According to coach Bruce Arena, speaking to the club’s official website, the Liverpool legend is due back in training imminently.

While it remains to be seen whether the midfielder will be back in action for the Galaxy’s trip to Houston Dynamo on Friday, Arena is confident that the icon’s return is imminent.

“We expect Stevie to be available,” the former USMNT coach began. “We’ll get him through training over the next couple days. We haven’t thought about our travel squad yet. We’ll do that after training tomorrow.”

Gerrard last featured for LA Galaxy against San Jose Earthquakes on March 19, but was replaced early in the match after picking up a calf injury.

He was absent for the next two fixtures, a 0-0 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps and the controversial 1-1 draw with Portland Timbers last weekend, a result wholly overshadowed by a horror tackle made by Nigel de Jong on midfielder Darlington Nagbe.

Gerrard moved to Major League Soccer at the end of the 2014-15 campaign, after parting ways with Liverpool.

The England centurion represented Liverpool for 17 years, notably winning the Champions League in 2005.
