Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard announced his retirement from professional football overnight, ending a 19-year career.
The 36-year-old made 710 appearances for his boyhood club Liverpool, where he collected nine major trophies which included a UEFA Champions League triumph in 2005.
Gerrard is also England’s fourth most-capped player, making 114 appearances for the three lions before announcing his international retirement at the conclusion of the 2014 World Cup.
Gerrard’s tenure at Liverpool came to an end after the 2014/15 season before he went on to join MLS side LA Galaxy for two seasons. His spell at the west-coast club saw him reach the conference playoff finals just once.
Much speculation about Gerrard’s future has been discussed and is poised to join Liverpool on an academy coaching role as he makes the move from playing to coaching.
