Gerrard sure of Liverpool return


Steven Gerrard is confident he will represent Liverpool 'sooner rather than later' but for now is happy to go 'unnoticed' in the United States.

Gerrard spent 17 years at Liverpool before leaving his boyhood club at the end of last season to move to Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy.

During his time at Anfield, Gerrard won the Champions League, the UEFA Cup, two FA Cups and three League Cups and, while he is happy in California, the 35-year-old misses home and plans to return to Liverpool 'somewhere down the line'.

"I will be going home at some point," Gerrard told a fans' question and answer session at LA Galaxy's stadium.

"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."

While he is looking forward to returning to Liverpool, the former England captain insists he is enjoying life in the United States.

"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."
