Major League Soccer (MLS) club, LA Galaxy, have announced that Steven Gerrard has left the club, after his contract expired.
The former Liverpool captain scored five goals and provided 14 assists in 34 appearances, during the MLS regular season after he joined in 2015.
He is now expected to return to British shores, with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp saying Gerrard would “always be welcome” at Anfield.
Gerrard has however stated that he is not sure what his next step will be.
“When I left Liverpool, I came to Los Angeles with the goal of helping the Galaxy lift another MLS Cup,” he said in a statement.
“I am of course disappointed to have not achieved that objective, but I can look back at my time at the club with pride at what we accomplished, including two straight playoff appearances and countless memorable moments on the pitch.
“As someone who spent the whole of their career in Liverpool, it has been an incredible experience to come to Los Angeles and play for the LA Galaxy.
“I would also like to thank my teammates, the coaching staff, all of the support staff and most importantly the fans for their fantastic support during my time at Galaxy; I am excited to see this league and this great club continue to grow.
“I am now looking forward to spending time with my family as I consider the next stage of my career.”
Gerrard’s departure follows his former England midfield partner Frank Lampard’s decision to leave New York City FC upon the expiration of his contract.
