Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern were warned to look away as Metro reveals a photo of Reds legend Steven Gerrard posing with his LA Galaxy shirt in front of the Hollywood sign.
The midfielder is seen posing for the photo Liverpool fans thought they would never see.
The picture was captioned with the quote: ‘Welcome to Los Angeles, Steven Gerrard. #GR8NESS’
The 35-year-old is set to make his debut for Galaxy on the 17th of July at home to San Jose Earthquakes.
There was plenty of speculation over the destination of Gerrard, having received numerous transfer offers from all over Europe. But the idea of a whole new challenge in America seemed to good to deny.
‘I had some nice opportunities around Europe,’ he told Galaxy TV.
‘But I wanted a completely fresh challenge, to come out of my comfort zone, live away from home and get a different life experience and choose a place where my family can enjoy themselves and settle.
‘When I retire from football in a few years time I want to say I did try something different and didn’t stay in the same place – although I loved every minute of it.’
