Steven Gerrard is enjoying his time in Los Angeles since joining MLS, however, there is one thing that has made the former Liverpool skipper very angry and that is the ever present comparisons with Frank Lampard.
All their career, the duo have been put against each other and the debate has been a never-ending one about who is the better out of the two. Both of them exited Premier League at almost same time to join MLS, however, the comparisons have not ended.
Since coming back to Liverpool, Gerrard was speaking with Daily Star, where he said: ‘Frank is a legend and certainly one of those high-end players who will help lift the quality of this league.
‘But we’ve both drawn a line under our England careers so I don’t see any reason why we should bring that topic up again. It was always a media thing – we get along just fine,’
Comparisons aside, Gerrard is loving his life in America where he is getting more time with his family and kids. He gets the time relax and has got a special nick-name from his kids as well.
Gerrard said: ‘I’m there to take them to school in the morning. I pick them up in the afternoon and we go to the beach together. The kids love it so much they have even started calling me Superdad,’ Gerrard explained.’
There were talks of Gerrard returning to Liverpool as a player until January, however, the possibility has been put to bed by Jurgen Klopp as well as Gerrard. It is now believed that the former England International will only train at Anfield with his former teammates.
