Steven Gerrard wants him to have signed a new deal at Liverpool to play under Jurgen Klopp, after refusing the opportunity to sign a one-year extension before moving to the United States.
Gerrard, who played over 700 games for Liverpool between 1998 and 2015, is widely regarded as one of the best players in the history of the club. The former England player won nine trophies at Anfield, including the Champions League, while also securing 186 goals and 143 assists.
He eventually left the Reds to take up a new MLS challenge with the LA Galaxy, where he spent a year before announcing his retirement from professional play.
The 40-year-old has now admitted that he regrets ending his career at Liverpool so quickly, with the opportunity to play for Klopp at the start of his hugely successful reign.
“Looking now, I would like to have signed the one-year final contract offered to me by Liverpool because I would have the opportunity to have a short period playing under Jurgen Klopp,” Gerrard initially told Daily Mail.
“It simply came to our notice then. “I had a fantastic trip to Liverpool and the greatest achievements that the club made of me are memories that I will never forget and I will always appreciate and think about them every day.”
“At the same time, I have had some moments that I have tried to get past in terms of brutally low levels, but I do not always want to talk about high levels.”
“I want to look back on that journey with love because I lived my dream and played for my local team and achieved things I never dreamed of,” concluded the former Reds English legend. / Telegraphy /
