Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is to leave the club at the end of the season, but will not join another English club.
The ex England captain is linked with a move to the US with LA Galaxy seemingly the favourites to sign him.
The 34 year old was free to start negotiations with an overseas club yesterday, after turning down a contract extension.
This was former Reds defender Jamie Carragher’s reaction to the news on Twitter.
“Sad day for Liverpool and English football with the Gerrard news. I think it’s the right decision, all things considered.”
Gerrard has been used on a rotational basis by Brendan Rodgers this season, and yesterday scored two penalties in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Leicester.
Gerrard’s honours include: three League Cups, two FA Cups, one UEFA Cup, two UEFA Super Cups, and of course one Champions League back in 2005.
He could add to that illustrious haul of medals, as Liverpool remain in three cup competitions.
