Steven George Gerrard, MBE (born 30 May 1980) is an English professional footballer who plays for Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy. He spent the majority of his career playing for Premier League club Liverpool, with most of that time as their captain. He has played much of his career as a centre midfielder, but has also been used as an attacking midfielder, right winger, second striker, defensive midfielder, and right back. Gerrard spent 17 seasons at Anfield, making his Liverpool debut in 1998, cementing his place in the first team in 2000, and succeeding Sami Hyypiä as team captain in 2003. His honours include two FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Champions League, one UEFA Cup, and two UEFA Super Cups. Gerrard scored Liverpool’s first goal and won the penalty kick for the third as Liverpool came from 3–0 down to defeat Milan in the 2005 Champions League Final. He joined Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy in July 2015, following the conclusion of the 2014–15 season with Liverpool. Gerrard made his international debut for the England national football team in 2000, and represented his country at the 2000, 2004 and 2012 UEFA European Football Championships, as well as the 2006, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups – captaining the team at the latter two tournaments. He was named as the permanent England captain shortly before UEFA Euro 2012, where he was named in the UEFA Team of the Tournament. Gerrard became the sixth player to win 100 caps for England in 2012, and is currently third in the country’s all-time appearance list. He ended his international career in July 2014, having won 114 caps. Gerrard is a practising Catholic. He and his wife, Alex Curran, married in a Catholic ceremony in Wymondham on 16 June 2007. He has an older brother, Paul (not to be confused with former Everton goalkeeper Paul Gerrard), and his cousin, Anthony Gerrard, plays for Shrewsbury Town. Steven and Alex have three daughters. In September 2006, Gerrard published his autobiography, Gerrard: My Autobiography, ghost-written by journalist Henry Winter, which went on to win the Sports Book of the Year honour at the British Book Awards. Gerrard’s second volume of autobiography, My Story, written with Donald McRae, was published in September 2015. The autobiography ends with “I play for Jon-Paul.” Gerrard’s cousin, Jon-Paul Gilhooley, was killed in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, when Gerrard was eight. Jon-Paul, who was 10 when he died, was the youngest of the 96 victims of the tragedy. “It was difficult knowing one of your cousins had lost his life”, Gerrard said. “Seeing his family’s reaction drove me on to become the player I am today.”
