Gerrard may move abroad before finishing career

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has not ruled out the possibilty of leaving Anfield in the future to see out the final years of his career.

Gerrard, who is now 34, has spent his while career with his hometown team and recently decided to hang up his international boots following this summer’s disapointing World Cup campaign.

And a move to a different league in the future is something he has not ruled out:

“I’ve never really discussed it with anyone or thought about it. Maybe one day I would like the chance to go away from Liverpool for a short time and try something different.”

Gerrard also spoke about Frank Lampard’s move to the MLS and said how it’s a great move for his ex-international team mate.

“I think Frank has made a great decision. At his age, 36, he’s had a wonderful career and I don’t think he has anything to prove in England in any more.”

The Liverpool midfielder is still eager to win the Premier League with Liverpool having come so close to doing so last year, so no move out of Merseyside will be imminent. 

However Gerrard declared: “One day that might happen to me (following Frank’s footsteps), I don’t know, I haven’t given it much thought. That carrot hasn’t been dangled yet.”
