Regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of his generation, Steven Gerrard cemented his legacy as a Liverpool legend during his 17 years at the club, 11 of which he was captain, and was the heart and soul of the football club for over a decade.
Considered the greatest player never to win the Premier League, Gerrard chose to remain loyal to his boyhood club when the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid came calling and would have almost certainly won several league titles had he left the club.
He did however win two FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Cup, one UEFA Super Cup and inspired the team to victory in the 2005 UEFA Champions League final. Gerrard was also named in the PFA Team of the Year a record eight times, FIFA World XI three times and won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year in 2006 and 2009 respectively. He played 114 times for England and captained the side at UEFA Euro 2012 and two FIFA World Cups in 2010 and 2014.
