Steven Gerrard has confessed that next season may be his last as a professional footballer, according to Sky Sports.
The former England captain’s campaign ended in disappointment as LA Galaxy were knocked out of the play-offs last week against Seattle Sounders.
Gerrard, now 35, only joined Galaxy in the summer, after choosing to leave his beloved Liverpool in search of first-team football. However, he feels that next season could be his last in the game as a player.
It could be my last season as a footballer. I certainly don’t want to feel like I’m feeling right now come next year.
I’d love to go out on a high. It’s a long season and I only came here for the last four months, but I’ll certainly be better for the experience next year.
A league title is one thing that has eluded Steven Gerrard during his illustrious career, which includes over 700 appearances and 185 goals for his boyhood team Liverpool, and last season could have been his last chance to pick up a league trophy.
The midfielder has been very complimentary of Major League Soccer during his time in Los Angeles and has admitted playing in the USA has been a learning curve.
Going on the road, playing on turf, playing at altitude, playing in humidity, those are the hurdles that I’ve had to face over the last three months that I wasn’t aware of. Every away game has a different challenge.
At home, we’ve got no problems because we’re very strong and we play well. We’ll always win more than we lose.
