Steven Gerrard will confirm his decision to leave Liverpool later this week after 16 years in the first team. Despite being offered a new deal by his home club, he is wanted by three MLS clubs and the prospect of being on the bench for much of next season has deterred him from putting pen to paper.
Peter Crouch says; “Steven is easily the best player I have ever played with.”
Jamie Carragher; “Sad day for Liverpool and English football. I think it’s the right decision, all things considered.”
Gary Lineker; “One of the finest players to have graced the Premier League. A top, top player.”
Regarded as one of the best players for Liverpool, he made his debut in 1998 and went on to lead the club to 10 trophies. He will be sorely, sorely missed and it’s a shame his wonderful Liverpool career has to end this way.
