The 35-year-old says he is enjoying his time with MLS side LA Galaxy but hopes to make the move “home” and represent his boyhood club again in the near future.

Steven Gerrard says he hopes to represent Liverpool again “sooner rather than later”, though he maintains he is happy at LA Galaxy.

The midfielder remains a key player for the MLS side he joined in July 2015, and came off the bench to score an impressive goal in Sunday’s clash with New England Revolution.
However, Gerrard admits that he wants to return “home” to Liverpool in the near future and take up a role with the club he spent 28 years with.

“I will be going home at some point,” he said. “I don’t want to start any unnecessary rumours. I’m really happy where I am at the moment.

“But I’m sure somewhere down the line I will represent Liverpool Football Club.

“I miss my friends and my family. I miss a bit of cold weather. I miss going to the games. I spent 35 years in Liverpool. Liverpool’s my home, it always will be. This is my second home for a short period of time.

“Sooner rather than later I will return to where I’m comfortable with my people – and that’s Liverpool.”

The 35-year-old is enjoying his adventure in the United States, however, and is happy at the lack of attention he attracts in Los Angeles.

“Obviously the city’s a fantastic city for myself and my family, the climate, there’s plenty to do,” he added. “I’m pretty much unnoticed as well, which is a bonus.

“I’m getting on a little bit now so eventually we’ll move back and settle in Liverpool.”
