Steven Gerrard will continue to win trophies when he moves to LA Galaxy, says ex-Liverpool team-mate Jamie Carragher.
Gerrard won 10 trophies during his 17-year career at Anfield, including the 2005 UEFA Champions League, two FA Cups and three League Cups.
His final Liverpool apperance on Sunday did not go as planned, the midfielder netting the consolation in a 6-1 Premier League hammering at Stoke City, but Carragher believes his friend and former team-mate’s winning mentality will shine through in MLS.
“The football will be serious and he’ll want LA Galaxy to win the MLS and win trophies,” he told BBC Radio Merseyside.
“He’ll still be getting judged out there and if he’s not performing I’m sure they’ll let him know.
“We’ll be reading about him doing something in a cup final and taking them to a trophy – he’s done that throughout his career and it’s not going to change now.”
When asked about Gerrard’s standing among other Liverpool legends, Carragher said: “He’s right up there at the top.
“There’s always a toss up between him and Kenny Dalglish. There’s no doubt the opinion will be split down the middle and you couldn’t argue either way.
“Liverpool have lost great players before and great players will come again.
“A player as good as Stevie? It’s almost impossible to replace that. Steven is the type of player that only comes around every 30 years.”
