Steven Gerrard says he is “really happy” at LA Galaxy but plans to return home “sooner rather than later” and is sure he will represent Liverpool again.
Gerrard only joined Galaxy last summer but has no plans to make Los Angeles his long-term base, even admitting he misses the weather in England.
Speaking at a fans’ question and answer session at LA Galaxy’s stadium, Gerrard said: “I will be going home at some point.
“I don’t want to start any unnecessary rumours. I’m really happy where I am at the moment. But I’m sure somewhere down the line I will represent Liverpool Football Club.
“I miss my friends and my family. I miss a bit of cold weather.
“I miss going to the games. I spent 35 years in Liverpool. Liverpool’s my home, it always will be. This is my second home for a short period of time.
“Sooner rather than later I will return to where I’m comfortable with my people – and that’s Liverpool.”
Gerrard, who came on as a substitute and scored the Galaxy’s final goal in their 4-2 win over New England Revolution on Sunday, said his wife Alex and daughters, Lilly-Ella, Lexie and Lourdes, were “enjoying a different life experience” in LA.
He added: “Obviously the city’s a fantastic city for myself and my family, the climate, there’s plenty to do. I’m pretty much unnoticed as well, which is a bonus.
“I’m getting on a little bit now so eventually we’ll move back and settle in Liverpool.”
