Longtime Liverpool midfielder, Steven Gerrard, was given a PFT special merit award last night in recognition of his remarkable 17 year career at Anfield.
Gerrard has been a legendary player for Liverpool over his 17 years, capturing seven major trophies while making 706 appearances and scoring 183 goals for the Reds. He has also been a key component for the England national team over his career.
Gerrard has been an undisputed leader and playmaker during his time with Liverpool. Gerrard made waves earlier in the year when he announced he would be electing to play for the LA Galaxy after this season.
With just six more league games remaining for the Liverpool captain, the footballing union granted Gerrard with a special merit award in recognition of his achievements.
Of the award, Gerrard said, “I’m obviously pleased. Every time you get an individual award and get rewarded for the job you’re doing, you’re always happy. I’m really pleased.”
