Football News

Steven Gerrard has been quick to make an impression since arriving at the LA Galaxy this summer, scoring on his debut and providing three assists already in his young MLS career.

unlikely challenge

And, judging by a video posted by his new team today, the former Liverpool star has saved some of his skills for the practice field, too.

Along with Galaxy teammates Robbie Keane, Baggio Husidic and A.J. DeLaGarza, Gerrard is tasked with firing as many footballs as they can through the open windows of a brand new Chevrolet car. Its safe to say there is only one winner.

Stepping up last, Gerrard looks like a natural as he takes aim at the expensive looking vehicle. Fortunately for Chevrolet the ex-England captain still retains the technique that made him a hero at Anfield before his move stateside.

The challenge is part of an ongoing series between the four Galaxy stars and, as the table in the video shows, Steven Gerrard's pinpoint accuracy has seen him draw level with Republic of Ireland international Robbie Keane.

Previous challenges have included finding the trunks of pick-up trucks and evading cars to score long-distance free kicks.

You can't quite imagine the same sort of challenges on show at Liverpool's Melwood training ground, although Brendan Rodgers is known for some unorthodox training methods so you never know.

Hit the ground running

While he's not been busy bombarding giant American cars Steven Gerrard has been showcasing exactly why the Los Angeles Galaxy were so desperate to sign him earlier this year.

In three MLS starts the veteran midfielder has done much to put to bed fears that his move to America was a sign that his talents were on the decline.

One thing that may worry fans of the MLS franchise however, beyond keeping an eye on their cars during the game, is news that Gerrard will be making regular, arduous 11,000 mile round trips back to the UK to fulfil his role as Champions League pundit for BT Sport.

It had been thought the ex-Liverpool man would only be called upon during the MLS offseason but new reports suggest it will be a tournament round role.

What do you think? Could Steven Gerrard still be a success in the Premier League, or is MLS the right move? Have your say in the comments below...
