The LA Galaxy announced this morning that they’ve signed England midfielder Steven Gerrard from Liverpool FC. He will be their third Designated Player.
Gerrard has lived in Liverpool his entire life, so he’s hoping that the adjustment won’t be too hard. The Galaxy are hoping that too, because they’re currently searching for their 5th MLS cup–a first in MLS history.
The deal is set to last for 18 months and couldn’t come at a better time for the Galaxy, having just lost captain Landon Donovan to retirement.
