Steven Gerrard has revealed the main reason for him dumping Liverpool for the MLS.
In an interview with Liverpool’s website, the Liverpool captain said he made the decision after manager Brendan Rodgers told him he’d be making less starts in the future.
“The key conversation was when the manager sat me down and said it was time to manage my games.”
“It was a very difficult conversation to have. I’m bright enough to realise it is the right thing. I accept it.”
“When you’ve been a starter and a mainstay in the team for such a long time… I had an idea the conversation was going to come at some time, but it was a painful conversation,” the former England international said.
