Steven Gerrard says he will return to Liverpool “sooner rather than later” despite enjoying his time at LA Galaxy.
The 35-year-old has started his first full season in California having joined the MLS side halfway through the 2015 campaign on an 18-month contract.
But Gerrard is already thinking about returning to England and settling back in Liverpool at some stage in the not-too-distant future.
“I will be going home at some point,” the midfielder said at a Galaxy fans’ question and answer session.
“Sooner rather than later I will return to where I’m comfortable with my people – and that’s Liverpool.
“I miss going to the games. I spent 35 years in Liverpool. Liverpool’s my home, it always will be. This is my second home for a short period of time.
“I miss my friends and my family. I miss a bit of cold weather. I’m getting on a little bit now so eventually we’ll move back and settle in Liverpool.”
Gerrard, though, has enjoyed being away from the spotlight while playing in the United States.
He continued: “Obviously the city’s a fantastic city for myself and my family, the climate, there’s plenty to do. I’m pretty much unnoticed as well, which is a bonus.
“I don’t want to start any unnecessary rumours. I’m really happy where I am at the moment. But I’m sure somewhere down the line I will represent Liverpool Football Club.”
