LA Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard has revealed that he could retire from the game in 2016.
As reported by Goal.com, the Liverpool legend, who departed English soil at the end of last season, has insisted that he would love to finish his career on a high in the US.
Gerrard's season ended in disappointment as LA Galaxy were knocked out of the MLS Cup by the Seattle Sounders, but the former Reds skipper is determined to experience success next term.

However, in pursuit of a trophy, the 35-year-old could be about to play out his final season as a professional footballer.
"It could be my last season as a footballer. I certainly don’t want to feel like I’m feeling right now come next year," Gerrard told Galaxy's official website.
"I’d love to go out on a high. It’s a long season and I only came here for the last four months, but I’ll certainly be better for the experience next year."
One thing is for sure, it now looks all but certain that Gerrard won't return to Anfield as a player. Sections of the Kop may well be dreaming of an emotional return for their former talisman, but that's now seemingly unlikely.
Gerrard will forever remain a hero on Merseyside, so a return in some capacity certainly shouldn't be ruled out.
There's no reason why the club's former skipper won't one day become boss of the Anfield outfit. Perhaps Gerrard is still dreaming of Premier League title success with Liverpool.
