Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has revealed that he is still undecided if he’ll retire when his current contract with LA Galaxy expires, but the midfielder is open to a move back to more familiar surrounds.

Like many top footballers whose better years are behind them, Steven Gerrard decided to head stateside after his glittering career at Anfield came to an end.

To the MLS and LA Galaxy, where Gerrard is a teammate of Robbie Keane and Ashley Cole. As a designated player, the Californian club were allowed to exceed the league’s salary cap when handing Gerrard an 18-month deal.

Gerrard turned 36 in May but still feels he might have some good years left in him, and is expected to hold talks with LA Galaxy come November. Gerrard admitted to the Sunday Mirror that he is still considering his options and that a move elsewhere is not beyond the realms of possibility.

“I’m wondering whether I should play on for a little bit longer or whether I should call it a day. I haven’t 100 pc decided on that yet.

“I still enjoy playing. I still love coming into training, I still love competing, so if I can carry on and there are opportunities to stay here or go somewhere else for another six months or 12 months then I’ll consider it.”

If not, he’ll immediately throw himself into coaching, but  it would seem that the former Liverpool skipper isn’t quite ready for that scenario. 

"But if nothing comes up I’ll try and fly through the coaching badges and see what happens down that road.

“Maybe it’s an obsession but I still love playing. I’m going to be a long time retired and so I still want to enjoy things while I’m still feeling good.”
