Steven Gerrard | Early Life and Family

Steven Gerrard was born in a small town called Whiston, England, on May 30, 1980. Coming from a humble background with English roots, sports was the most-loved part of his household, with all of his cousins involved in the sport. While one of his cousins, Anthony Gerrard, was a professional center-back who spent most of his career in the football league, his other cousin, Bobby Duncan, also played for Liverpool’s academy team.

Steven Gerrard | Club Career

Liverpool

After joining the Liverpool youth academy during his youth days, the player went through the youth academy levels performing on a brilliant level so much so that Gerrard was given his first-team debut for Liverpool on November 29, 1998, in a Premier League match against Blackburn Rovers. Initially in his career, Gerrard struggled to impress the managers, often playing out of position and lacking depth. Nonetheless, Liverpool’s coaching staff believed in the player and Gerrard saw himself primarily as a defensive midfielder, looking for key tackles.

Becoming captain in 2003 for the Liverpool team after suffering through numerous injury issues in the past season, Gerrard started delivering at a consistent pace and became a key part of every Liverpool team under different managers. Under his captaincy, he helped his club win the EFL Cup, the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup, the Champions League, and the UEFA Super Cup. He was also named the UEFA Best Player of Europe in 2005 and the Footballer of the Year in 2009. 

Known for his versatility and wide skills to play different positions and roles for the team, Gerrard continued to play consistently well for the club, with impressive numbers even as a defensive midfielder. He was once regarded as possibly the best football player in the world. After his impressive 500th league appearance for Liverpool in a goalless draw against West Brom on March 25, 2015, Gerrard shockingly left the club in the summer and signed for MLS club LA Galaxy in the summer of 2015.

LA Galaxy

Playing for the MLS side for the next season, Gerrard helped them reach important finals with his all-important goals, assists, and contributions, but he was never able to help them win any major trophy during his 18-month contract there. After facing unexpected aging issues during long journeys to away games in diverse weather and altitudes, Steven Gerrard announced his retirement from professional football on November 24, 2016.

Steven Gerrard | International Career

After his impressive youth days, Gerrard was called up early in the England senior national team squad and made his debut against Ukraine on May 31, 2000. After his debut in 2000, the player participated in various international competitions for his country, including Euro 2000, the 2002 FIFA World Cup, Euro 2004, the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Euro 2012, the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and other qualifying matches. 

After becoming England’s fourth most-capped international player with 114 caps, Gerrard announced his retirement from international football on July 21, 2014, after his former teammate Jorden Henderson described him as “probably the best player this country has ever seen—not only as a player but also as a leader and a captain.

Steven Gerrard | Managerial Career

Following his retirement in November 2016, the Liverpool youth team appointed him as their youth coach after he impressed everyone with his work ethic, knowledge, and attitude toward the academy. Showing his impressive performances with the Liverpool youth teams, Gerrard was confirmed as the new manager of the Scottish club Rangers on June 1 and signed a four-year contract ahead of the 2018–19 season. 

After his senior managerial debut on July 12, 2018, he helped his club perform majestically in matches in the next three seasons, finally helping the Rangers win the Scottish League in the 2020–21 season through a record-breaking season, claiming 102 points without even losing a single league match.

Gerrard, after his first managerial trophy with Rangers, was appointed as the head coach of Aston Villa, where he provided mixed results under his tenure. Despite signing a three-and-a-half-year contract with the club, Gerrard was dismissed by the club on October 20, 2022, after winning just two matches in the 12 opening matches with the club in the 2022–23 season. 

Despite not impressing at the previous club as a manager, Gerrard was appointed manager of the Saudi Pro League club Al-Ettifaq on July 3, 2023. After signing a two-year contract extension with the club, he set his stay in the club until the summer of 2027 and has been helping the club perform on a different level in the last matches due to his tactical brilliance and in-game decisions.
