Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard, who is set to join MLS outfit LA Galaxy in the summer, will release his autobiography in September. It has been confirmed Guardian writer Donald McRae will be writing Steven Gerrard’s second autobiography. The former England skipper first autobiography was released in 2007.

In a statement on McRae’s personal website, the South African said: “It’s been a pleasure and a privilege working with Steven Gerrard on his autobiography. I am writing the book but Gerrard leads us through every exhilarating high and bruising low of his 27 years at Liverpool. It is a career full of contrast and drama.

“There is depth and pathos, too, because Steven Gerrard is a one-club man who joined the Liverpool academy at the age of eight. While English football has turned itself inside out, undergoing enormous upheaval, often fuelled by greed and selfishness, Gerrard has stayed constant. He played 710 games for Liverpool and earned 114 caps for England.

“Many of the goals are incredible while the biggest games are riveting. His very public long goodbye is often painful, always moving. But the grittier, far more private details are the most powerful. The cast of characters offer intriguing and revealing insights into the addictive soap-opera of modern football – from Luis Suárez to Brendan Rogers, José Mourinho to Rafa Benítez, Paolo Maldini to Andea Pirlo, Fernando Torres to Raheem Sterling, the list is richly varied.”

Steven Gerrard will be leaving for LA Galaxy in July and manager Bruce Arena wants him to feature in the International Champions Cup at home to Mexico’s Club America.

“We expect him here before 11 July,” Arena told his club’s website. “We haven’t finalised a date yet. He will be here, he’ll get some training in and by the time that he’s eligible to play he’ll be ready to go.”
