End of an Era: Steven Gerrard

Today, marked the end of Steven Gerrard's European career when he played for Liverpool for the last time at Anfield. One of the greatest players never to win the English Premiership and despite that, the former England captain still accomplished a lot in his career. Scoring 119 goals in more than 500 appearances, he led Liverpool to two FA Cup triumphs, one UEFA Cup and a UEFA Champions League title. It's basically, an end of an era in Liverpool as he's about to start a new chapter in North America playing for MLS side Los Angeles Galaxy.

He will always be one of my favourite football players of all time alongside Zinedine Zidane, Raúl González Blanco, David Beckham, Kaká, and Ronaldinho.
