Is this the end of Steven Gerrard’s playing career?
Steven Gerrard has reached the end of his contract with the MLS side LA Galaxy as it expired at the end of the season and since the 2016 season of the MLS is over, questions are beginning to rise in relation to the future of the 36 year old English midfielder.
Now that his time with LA Galaxy is over, what will Steven Gerrard do now?
The head coach of LA Galaxy, Bruce Arena has recently talked about Steven Gerrard’s current situation and even though Gerrard is at a very elevated age with 36 years, Bruce Arena stated that he would like to see the veteran player continue performing with LA Galaxy, this will ultimately depend on Gerrard as there are rumors going on linking Gerrard with a possible return to Anfield but as a coach instead of an actual player.
“We were honoured to have Stevie here as well as Robbie and are hopeful they continue to be part of our club,” Bruce Arena said as he voiced his desire for Gerrard to remain with LA Galaxy.
There have been other rumors that have been linking the veteran midfielder with other clubs including: Celtic and even Ac.Milan but realistically speaking, it’s more likely to see him off of the pitch and take on a much more tactical approach in his next job as a coach instead of an actual player.
The playing career of Steven Gerrard spans for over 15 years and even though the English player has lifted various European titles such as: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and UEFA Cup, just to name a few of his pieces of silverware, something that he never managed to secure was the Premier League trophy and he might be able to finally lift it if he does indeed get the chance to return to Liverpool and coach the team or at least help out in some other way.
