Former Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard has finally announced his retirement from professional football.
Gerrard inspired Liverpool to the famous Champions League final victory over heavyweights Milan in 2005. He served the Mersyside outfit for 710 matches over two decades.
The Reds won the FA Cup twice (2001, 2006), the League Cup on three occasions (2001, 2003, 2012) and the UEFA Cup once (2001) during his 18-year association with the club.
At international level, Gerrard won 114 caps for England and is his country’s fourth most capped player of all time behind Peter Shilton, Wayne Rooney and David Beckham.
