Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard reveals what former Manchester United star David Beckham told him before his move to Los Angeles Galaxy.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has revealed to Eurosport the advice former Manchester United star David Beckham gave him before his move to Los Angeles Galaxy.

Gerrard joined LA Galaxy in the summer transfer window as a free agent after leaving Premier League outfit Liverpool at the end of the 2014-15 season.

The former England international midfielder had been at Liverpool his entire career until last summer.

“He said to me, make sure you come here and enjoy the experience,” the 35-year-old told Eurosport when asked about the advice he was given by Beckham.

“The club is very good. He spoke really well about the level in the team, in the staff. He said to me it will be a very good experience for myself and my family and he was right.”

Beckham started his career at Premier League powerhouse United and played with Gerrard for the England national team for years.

The now-retired midfielder was on the books of Galaxy from 2007 to 2012 and was quite successful in Major League Soccer.

The former Real Madrid star won the MLS Cup and the MLS Supporters’ Shied twice each.

Gerrard, who clinched the Champions League with Liverpool in 2005, has failed to spark in MLS, but one can expect him to step up his game next season after a well-needed rest.
