Steven Gerrard eyes Liverpool return from LA 'sooner rather than later'

LA Galaxy midfielder Steven Gerrard says he is enjoying going "unnoticed" in Los Angeles but plans to return to Liverpool "sooner rather than later."

Gerrard, 35, joined LA Galaxy last year after a distinguished 17-year career with hometown club Liverpool, where he achieved Champions League glory in 2005.

The former England captain said he and his family were happy living in California, but admitted he missed friends and family in the UK as well as attending games at Anfield.

Speaking at a fans' question and answer session at LA Galaxy's StubHub Center, he 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.

"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," he added.

"I'm getting on a little bit now so eventually we'll move back and settle in Liverpool."
