Former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard has retired, ending a 19-year playing career. Gerrard, 36, played 710 times for the Reds, winning nine trophies, but joined MLS side LA Galaxy in 2015. The midfielder is England’s fourth most-capped player with 114 appearances and captained the side at three of the six major tournaments he played at. “I feel lucky to have experienced so many wonderful highlights over the course of my career,” said Gerrard. “I have had an incredible career and am thankful for each and every moment of my time at Liverpool, England and LA Galaxy. “I fulfilled my childhood dream by pulling on the famous red shirt of Liverpool.” Gerrard said he will take time to consider his options before making an announcement on the next stage of his career “very soon”, adding: “I am excited about the future and feel I still have a lot to offer the game, in whatever capacity that may be.”
