Steven Gerrard to Leave Liverpool at the End of the Season: The Statement in Full

  • Steven Gerrard says he will leave Liverpool at the end of the season
  • He has scored 180 goals in 695 appearances since his debut in 1998
  • Gerrard says it has been the toughest decision of his life
  • He feels it is in the best interests of all involved, including his family
BBC, 2 January 2015



On Friday 2 January, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard announced that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Having made his debut in 1998, Gerrard's Anfield career includes 695 appearances and 180 goals over a period spanning nearly 17 years.

Come May, he will move away from his hometown, to a club 'outside the United Kingdom and at a side that will not bring him into direct competition with Liverpool', according to the Reds' website.

When the news was announced, Gerrard himself released a statement. You can read it here, in full:


Quote:
STEVEN GERRARD'S STATEMENT IN FULL






'This has been the toughest decision of my life and one which both me and my family have agonised over for a good deal of time.
'I am making the announcement now so that the manager and the team are not distracted by stories or speculation about my future.

'Liverpool Football Club has been such a huge part of all our lives for so long and saying goodbye is going to be difficult, but I feel it's something that's in the best interests of all involved, including my family and the club itself.

'I'm going to carry on playing and although I can't confirm at this stage where that will be, I can say it will be somewhere that means I won't be playing for a competing club and will not therefore be lining up against Liverpool - that is something I could never contemplate.

'My decision is completely based on my wish to experience something different in my career and life and I also want to make sure that I have no regrets when my playing career is eventually over.

'I can't thank Brendan, the owners and everyone at the club enough for how they've handled this and I am leaving on great terms. Also, I would like to thank my team-mates and all the staff for their help and continued support.
'It is a very special place to be part of. It is my sincere hope and wish that one day I can return to serve Liverpool again, in whatever capacity best helps the club.

'One point that is important to make is that from now until the last kick of the last game of the season, I will be as fully committed to the team as I ever have been and giving everything I have to help Liverpool win games.

'My final message is for the people who make Liverpool Football Club the greatest in the world - the supporters.
'It has been a privilege to represent you, as a player and as captain. I have cherished every second of it and it is my sincere wish to finish this season and my Liverpool career on a high.'
