Captain Steven Gerrard Confirms Liverpool Exit As FA Cup Returns

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season. Gerrard, 34, became free to sign a pre-contract agreement with an overseas team (most likely in the MLS) on Thursday.

The former England skipper, who made his Liverpool debut in 1998, will not move to another English club. And prefers an overseas move as opposed to the prospect of facing Liverpool.

Liverpool offered midfielder Gerrard a new deal in November confirmed the development on Friday saying it was the ‘Most difficult decision of my life’ and left Liverpool fans and the entire football fraternity in shock.

Steven Gerrard’s decision to quit the club at the end of the season was “a big shock”, according to Reds midfielder Jordan Henderson.

Gerrard has been at Liverpool for 25 years having joined at the age of 9, but will leave on a free transfer when his contract expires and has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer in the US. 

“We’ve seen stuff in the newspapers on whether he will renew his contract but everyone thought it would be done,” Henderson, 24, told Football Focus.

“But it was a big shock to see that he will be leaving. No one had a clue.”

Midfielder Gerrard has scored 180 goals in 695 games for the Reds and helped them win the Champions League, the Uefa Cup, two FA Cups, three League Cups, one Community Shield and two Uefa Super Cups as well as winning 114 caps with England.
