Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard revealed he had opportunities to stay in Europe, before opting to sign for MLS Cup champions Los Angeles Galaxy.

Gerrard ended his 26-year association with boyhood club Liverpool to link up with Galaxy as the team’s Designated Player.

The 35-year-old, who will make his debut against San Jose Earthquakes on July 17, said he rejected offers from European clubs before his arrival in Los Angeles.

“I had a couple opportunities around Europe, some nice opportunities,” Gerrard told Galaxy TV.

“But I wanted a completely fresh challenge, to come out of my comfort zone, live away from home and get a different life experience and choose a place where my family can enjoy themselves and settle.

“When I retire from football in a few years’ time I want to say I did try something different and didn’t stay in the same place – although I loved every minute of it.”
