Liverpool offered Steven Gerrard big deal
Liverpool chief Ian Ayre has insisted that the Merseyside club offered Steven Gerrard a substantial contract to keep him at the club, before the player’s decision to leave for the MLS in the summer. The 34-year-old will join up with LA Galaxy at the end of this season, but Ayre stated that his departure wasn’t one that was forced, and that it had more to do with the limited game-time he would get at Anfield as his age advances.
